This course introduces students to fundamental issues in both corporate financial management and investment management. Students learn to evaluate financial assets such as stocks and bonds and to characterize the markets in which these assets trade. They then learn how a corporate financial manager can employ these assets to fund profitable investment opportunities. Review and reinforcement of quantitative techniques is an important focus of the course.
Prerequisites: ECON 170, BUS 205, and MATH 160 (or 260). All prerequisite courses must be C- or higher.
