PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR:
Institution: Sydney Institute Of Business Technology (SIBT) - 2014 3rd Trimester
Course Code: AFIN253
Subject: Financial Management
Fundamentals of Corporate Finance 2e 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 (GFC), mangers have embarked on even more uncertain times. Thus, although the teaching of finance may have remained robust as a framework of conceptual thought, it is imperative that students come to realise that 'finance is not physics', by which we mean that even a concept as foundational to financial management as the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) should not be interpreted as a literal truth. This leads to a consideration of managing risk and risk management approaches as having behavioural aspects that are the outcomes of a manager's or the firm's accumulated experience. They cannot always be reduced to the simple directives of a quantitative algorithm.
The text helps students develop the intuition and analytical skills necessary to effectively apply financial tools in real-world decision-making situations.
The text 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 students to develop problem solving and decision-making skills.
The 2nd edition has undergone a thorough revision to the end of chapter materials, and the internal design of the book has been revamped to make it more visually appealing.
