This course is designed to provide the student with the basic understanding of the role of finance in firm management. Students will learn to analyze financial statements, determine the nature of the trade-off between risk and return, calculate time value of money (bond and stock valuation), estimate incremental cash flows, and apply principles of capital budgeting and working capital management.
The course consists of 16 learning modules to reinforce understanding of the concepts. Video cases and homework problems that have immediate feedback provides the student with the opportunity to apply the concepts addressed in each module. Module components include quizzes, tutorials, crossword puzzles, and other thought provoking activities.
