Course Overview:

The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to basic principles of finance. This is the basic knowledge for either a career in corporate finance or further education in the area of investments, real estate, banking, and insurance. It is also an excellent primer for non-finance majors wanting to familiarize with the world of finance. The primary goal of this course is to impart the knowledge to allow you to intelligently solve practical business problems. To achieve this goal, it is crucial that you have a sound understanding of finance theory.

The course introduces analytical techniques for evaluating personal and business investment and financing decisions, including coverage of the context and environment in which these decisions are made. Students learn financial jargon and the basic concepts, principles, tools, and techniques of finance such as time value of money, risk and return, analysis of financial statements, securities valuation, and capital budgeting. The idea is to develop a broad appreciation of the field of finance and its role in corporate value maximization. Regardless of your chosen future specialization, this course will help you make personal financial decisions such as investing into the stock market or buying a house.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explain the Goal of Financial Management and the conflicts of interest between managers and owners.
