Module content

The objective of the module is to provide an overview of the basic concepts and principles of financial management. The goal is to enable you to think through and come up with solutions to complex business problems from a finance perspective. Topics to be covered include the time value of money, the tradeoff between risk and return, valuation techniques, capital budgeting, and the role of financial markets. We will emphasize both the mathematical “tools” of financial decision making supported by IT, as well as the reasoning and concepts in appropriately applying these tools.
