Other Reading Material: Wall Street Journal and class handouts (including short case studies or articles). Calculator: You must have a financial calculator to be successful in this course. The following calculators are supported: TI BA II Plus, HP 10B, TI-83, or TI-89. If you have a different calculator, you may have to learn to operate it on your own. The instructor reserves the right to inspect calculators on exam days. *** Bring your calculator to class every day *** 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. Note: 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 view all the lectures at: http://www.isye.gatech.edu/engecon/lectures.php THE BUSINESS SCHOOL AT GEORGIA TECH Barry Marchman, Ph.D. Room 413 (404) 894-5110
