2 Course Description This course presents the fundamentals of financial management of the firm. Principal topics covered in this course include: 1. Introduction to financial management (forms of business organization, shareholder wealth maximization, social responsibility, agency theory, cash flows, net present value) 2. Canadian financial and fiscal environment (where the firm raises, uses and manages the capital needed and received and how taxes impact these processes). 3. Time value of money (also known as discounted cash flow analysis or financial mathematics). 4. Fixed income securities (how investors determine the value of fixed income securities). 5. Common shares (how investors determine the value of common shares). 6. Risk and return (focus is on the capital asset pricing model, the security market line, and the estimation of beta). 7. Cost of capital (how the firm establishes its marginal weighted cost of capital from long- term sources of capital — bonds, preferred shares, and common shares). 8. Cash flow analysis (how the firm calculates incremental project cash flows). 9. Capital budgeting (how the firm chooses investment projects). 10. Working capital management (how the firm uses and manages its short-term capital). 11. Short-term financing (how the firm raises the short-term capital needed). 12. Current asset management (how the firm manages its cash, marketable securities, and accounts receivable). Major Course Learning Objectives On completion of this course, students should understand: # Finance theory, so they can evaluate decisions concerning the investments and the financing of the firm. In particular, the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) approach is key to valuing assets and investment projects based on a forward-looking cash flow perspective. # Analytical techniques and their uses, so they can evaluate financial decision situations. # The Canadian institutional milieu within which financial decisions must be made.
