Course description

This course provides a foundation in theories of finance. Topics include time value of money, net present value analysis, security valuation, portfolio theory, asset pricing models, capital budgeting decision, capital structure decision, sources of financing for a firm, dividend policy, and mergers and acquisitions.

Course/Learning objective

This course is designed to give MBA students an overview of the role of financial management in business firms and to facilitate understanding of financial concepts and their applications. It is also intended to develop some proficiency in the use of the basic tools and techniques employed in financial analysis, traditional as well as newer concepts. It is, therefore, to help students understand why corporate financial managers behave the way they do. Students must also absorb facts and institutional materials being covered in lectures as well as in the text.

Prerequisite

MGT 201 (Quantitative Analysis) and MGT 211 (Financial Accounting)

Course Materials

 Textbook:Richard Brealey et al, Fundamentals of Corporate Finance, 7th ed., McGraw-Hill Irwin

 Alternative Textbook:Brealey et al, Principles of Corporate Finance, 11th ed., McGraw-Hill Irwin.

The spirit of the two books is similar. However, Fundamentals is less intimidating, and focuses attention on the underlying concept rather than the formula. Fundamentals uses numerical examples to a greater degree than in Principles, and assumes little in the way of background knowledge. On the other hand, Principles is known for its relaxed and informal writing style.

Fundamentals are available for purchase in the UCR bookstore while one copy of Principles is reserved in the Rivera library.
 Optional Text:Study Guide to the text
