Course Catalog Description:
An introduction to finance and to the securities markets. Topics include: time
value of money, risk and return, capital budgeting, security analysis and portfolio management of stocks, bonds,
and derivatives. No credit allowed for MGT majors. Credit not allowed for MGT 3078 and MGT 3062. Credit
not allowed for MGT 3078 and MGT 3076.
Due to the large overlap in material, it is my strong opinion that you should not get credit for both this
class and ISYE 3025 (Engineering Economy). However, until ISYE and COM can resolve this issue, it will
continue to be a problem or a benefit (depending on your perspective).
If you have already had Engineering
Economy, then the first weeks of this class will be a refresher course.
If you have not taken that course, you can
