1030am to 12n This course addresses the basic theory and practice of financial management The course has the following principal objectives 0 To provide a good foundation in basic concepts of nance including the time value of money valuation portfolio theory asset pricing and the riskreturn tradeoff To develop skills in nancial analysis and 0 To develop perspective and judgment in business decisions and an appreciation for planning and decision making in a complex world Despite the size of the class I know if you are absent Please email me if you are going to miss class Missing class is often correlated with poor performance in the tests and in the class Try not to miss class I really want you to learn a lot and to do well in the class For many of you this will be your rst exposure to nance Some of you perhaps through the Drexel coop program might have some experience in the nancial industry I view the interaction among the class and experiences from any prior employment to be an important part of the learning process Class attendance and participation are richly rewarded However due to the short schedule of this course students should avoid lengthy discussions and matters that may slow the pace of the class High quality vs high quantity class participation is suggested In addition everyone is strongly encouraged to contact the instructor andor teaching assistants TAs outside class to further clarify issues or to ask questions about the material covered Along with the material lectured in class advanced class preparation is probably the most important part of your learning experience Students should review the chapters and try the problems that pertain to the material to be covered in the following lecture In the past students who have tried the practice problems before the lecture tend to earn higher grades in this class Ross Wester eld amp Jordan Fundamentals of Corporate Finance alternate edition 939h Edition 2010 RWJ With the connect plus card For

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
