While organized to fit the course structure of the majority of undergraduate corporate finance and financial management courses, concepts are grounded in examples and language highly familiar to today's students. Long-term financial decisions are dis cussed before short-term decisions to emphasize the valuation approach throughout the text. The book also illustrates how the concepts can apply to many personal situations.About the Author:
