GMBA71-205: Managerial Finance


Managerial Finance provides a comprehensive introduction to corporate financial management. The subject links the mathematics of finance and discounted cash flows to finance theory, valuation and investment analysis. Portfolio theory is used to provide a foundation for determining the relationship between risk and return which is, in turn, extended into an analysis of capital structure and methods of estimating a firm’s cost of capital. The focus of this subject is on creating shareholder value, with due consideration given to the role of financial management within the broader context of corporate governance.
