Section Description: The focus of the course is the financial function in the corporation. We discuss the valuation of resources and proposed resource acquisitions or dispositions by answering two basic questions: (1) what should a firm invest in, and (2) how should the firm raise money. The course develops techniques to answer these questions from the finance perspective. These techniques include: calculating cash flow, determining the value of cash flows (time value), valuing equity and debt, and understanding the relationship between risk and return. Successful completion of BSAD 60, EC 11, EC 12, MATH 19 or 21, and STAT 141 is required before enrolling.
