COURSE SYLLABUS - FINANCE 350 Fall 2011 1 INSTRUCTOR: Donglin Li ( ) OFFICE: BUS 315 (415-405-0981) OFFICE HOUR: MW 12-1pm F 3-5pm CLASSROOM FIN350-01: BUS217 MWF 14:10-15:00 HOMEPAGE : REQUIRED TEXT: “Fundamentals of Financial Management” Brigham and Houston, Thomas Southwestern Publisher, concise edition. Prerequisites: ACCT 101 , ECON 101 , DS 110 , 212 ; ISYS 263 or pass computer information systems proficiency test. Please note that you need to get a grade of C- or better to use 350 as a prerequisite for higher level courses. Course Objectives: The primary purpose of the course is to provide students with some conceptual, analytical and institutional aspects of financial decision making at an introductory level. Specifically, the topics may include Financial Analysis, Capital Budgeting, Capital Structure, Valuation, Cost of Capital and Risk Analysis. I hope that by the end of this course you will have a grasp of basic finance principles and that you will have gone beyond just memorizing facts and formulae. This will enable you to better understand current events in finance and will provide a solid framework for any subsequent courses you wish to take in finance. I shall present the material in various topics. You are advised to review assigned chapters before each lecture. You are highly recommended to do the self-test problems and homework problems of each covered chapter in the textbook. Calculator: You must have a financial calculator to get through the course. Many of the test problems involve complex financial calculations - a financial calculator is necessary to solve them. No PC is allowed in exams. I recommend the Texas Instruments BAII-Plus. The BAII-Plus will do everything needed in this and other undergraduate finance classes. HP 10B II (Hewlett Packard) is another great choice. The ability to use a financial calculator is critical for success in this class. You are responsible for learning
