Introduction to Corporate Finance offers a dynamic, modern and practical approach that illustrates how financial management really works. It features up-to-date content including the impact of the Global Financial Crisis and capital budgeting. Introduction to Corporate Finance is distinguished by the cash-flow ‘arc’ of the narrative, which gives a practical learning path, and the use of real options, which is a practical analysis tool that is used in corporate finance.
Students are thus provided with the most engaging and contemporary learning path of any Australian text, giving them realistic preparation for a career in finance. The strong five part framework of the book is supported by integrated online elements and easy-to-read text.
