This class was tough.
If you are MBA student, then you have to take this course, and it is a doozy. It is very hard, especially if you have been out of school for awhile or havent taken a finance class, but if you put the effort into it, it is definitely worth it.
In this course I learned the components of the financial system and the manager's role in it (which included) competing interests of shareholders and managers and proposals for resolving the inherent conflict. I learned about financial statements which yield financial ratios and cash flows, environment and markets. I learned the basic principles of assessing risk and return in competitive financial markets (time value of money for example), stocks, bonds & securities; How to value stocks and bonds and in calculating net present value (NPV). I developed the application and generation of working capital components, and how they are used in financial planning and forecasting.
