Product description

From the Inside Flap

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance, 2nd edition, reflects the reality that finance, as an intellectual discipline, continues to be challenged by the experiences and events of market activity. Following the global financial crisis, managers are operating in relatively uncertain times.

The text helps you develop the intuition and analytical skills necessary to effectively apply financial tools in real-world decision-making situations. It provides a fully integrated framework for understanding how value creation relates to all aspects of corporate finance: whether it be evaluating an investment opportunity, determining the appropriate financing for a business, or managing working capital. This unique and integrated framework also enables you to develop problem-solving and decision-making skills.

This text has three core objectives:
1. Provide you with an intuitive framework for understanding fundamental finance concepts,
2. Show you how to analyse and solve finance problems and
3. Develop a skill set where you can apply the results of analysis to make good financial decisions.

In addition to these key objectives, students will obtain a greater understanding of finance
concepts through the following features:

  • Demonstration problems — examples that will provide opportunities to develop and refine
    problem solving skills.
  • Decision-making examples — based on a range of business experiences with a focus on the decision-making process of the financial manager.
  • Worked examples — that support key concepts and student learning.

Wiley wishes you success in your finance studies.
