The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic foundation in corporate finance. You'll build on this foundation if you continue to take finance courses and courses in other business disciplines and as you work with finance concepts in your life after graduation. You'll also use these concepts if you choose to develop your own personal investment portfolio. The course includes a review of accounting principles as they apply to corporate finance, the financial environment of business, valuation of projects, companies, and investment securities, and how a business allocates financial resources in an uncertain environment to maximize shareholder wealth. After completing the course, you should have gained an intuitive comprehension of financial concepts and analysis, an understanding of current issues in financial management, and the knowledge that all areas of finance are firmly rooted in valuation. Course Prerequisites You should have basic accounting, including an understanding of accounting terms and financial statements from BMGT 220 and 221, statistics, including probability, regression analysis, calculating mean and standard deviation from BMGT 230 or 231, and algebra (high school algebra I provides the math basics you will use most in this class).
