Managerial Finance

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, students are expected to:

  • Demonstrate basic understanding of financial concepts in every aspect of firm decision making
  • Apply the financial concepts and practices to problems and issues facing the firm
  • Demonstrate an ability to apply quantitative techniques to solving problems

This is the first finance course for all business majors and for some it will be the only finance course you take. The key takeaways from this course are: the time value of money, net present value (NPV), the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), the weighted average cost of capital (WACC), the dividend discount model, free cash flow, and project management.
