Description: Sometimes, finance can seem like a forbidding foreign language, with confusing jargon and complex and arcane rules. Many professionals are afraid to admit how financially illiterate they really are, no matter how much it costs their career. In this course, students will cover the same concepts as a core MBA core course. The difference: It is geared to learners with little exposure to finance.

According to Weston, the course will cover “the basics of financial valuation, the time value of money, compounding returns, and discounting the future.  You will understand discounted cash flow (DCF) valuation and how it compares to other methods.  We also step inside the mind of a corporate financial manager and develop the basic tools of capital budgeting.  We will survey the how, when, and where to spend money, make tradeoffs about investment, growth, dividends, and how to ensure sound fiscal discipline.  Our journey then turns to a Wall Street or capital markets perspective of investments as we discuss the fundamental tradeoff between risk and return.  We then synthesize our discussion of risk with our valuation framework and incorporate it into series of direct applications to practice.”
