Fall 2020 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 daily. 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.

 Through this course, students wishing to enter diverse areas of finance, such as asset management, credit analysis, financial and investment analysis, portfolio management, and risk management, will have the opportunity to acquire and develop critical work-related skills. These include evaluating corporate performance based on a thorough analysis of financial statements, estimating the present and future values of a wide range of cash flows, and using these concepts as the basis for asset valuation, applying commonly used cost-benefit analysis methods to evaluate investment decisions, and estimating the risk and return of individual securities and diversified portfolios.

 The topics covered in this course provide students with the necessary background and preparation to take more advanced courses in finance.
