What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

This paper develops the theories, principles, and practice of corporate finance after students learn the basics of finance from FINAN101. Financial management is one of the most important themes in the finance discipline. Theories and principles address major issues in financial management: capital budgeting, cost of capital, long term financial policy and working capital management. This paper helps, students, to understand what is involved in the financial activities of a corporation, what tasks are assigned to financial managers, and how to apply theories and principles in real business contexts.

More specifically, this paper covers capital budgeting and working capital management for private and public sector organisations. Three key important questions are answered in this course: What long-term investments should the firm take on? The cost of long-term financing to pay for the investment? How will we manage the everyday financial activities of the firm?
