BUSI PS5001 Course Outline -  Lectures , Assignments and Exams

This course is designed to provide practitioners and those seeking careers in finance with a rigorous combination of theory and practice as we explore the fundamental principles of finance. Students currently employed in this dynamic and evolving field will have the opportunity to become familiar with many of the core principles and concepts commonly applied in their field on a daily basis. From a practical perspective, Introduction to Finance is meant to reinforce work-related practices, such as analyzing financial statements, the application of time value of money concepts, asset valuation on a discounted cash flow (DCF) basis, cost benefit analysis (CBA), and the quantification of the multifaceted relationship between risk and return in financial markets.
