DESCRIPTION

Finance 1 answers managers' and investors' most fundamental finance question: how should a project or an asset be valued? Managers must determine the value of building a factory, entering a new market, or purchasing an entire firm when deciding in which projects to invest. Similarly, individuals must assess the value of financial securities to decide how to invest their wealth. Using a combination of lectures and business cases, Finance 1 teaches the discounted cash flow and multiples methods to value projects or assets. These valuation tools lay the foundation for all work in capital markets and corporate finance.
