Trimester 3 (as part of a study tour)
This unit is designed as an introduction to the theoretical principles of finance and the practical requirements of financial management within for-profit organisations. The aim of this unit is to provide students with an understanding of the types of financial decisions that need to be taken in order to create value within the firm beyond that which shareholders could create on their own and in doing so ensure the long term sustainability of the firm. Students will develop analytical skills for making key financial management decisions, including simulation and real option analysis. It also includes investment, financing, risk management, capital structure and dividend decisions within the context of the Australian and International financial institutional frameworks. The unit will develop an ability to apply basic mathematics to solve real problems in finance. The principles and skills developed will be as relevant for those who are running their own small business as they are for senior finance managers within large companies.
