Content

The objective of this unit is to provide students with the opportunity to engage with business, within the work place and in doing so develop practical and analytical finance skills by participating as a team member on a real work related project. Students will develop analytical skills for making key financial management decisions, including time-value-of money and risk-return analytics. It envelopes investment, financing, capital structure and payout decisions within the context of the Australian and international financial institutional frameworks. The unit will help students to develop an ability to apply basic mathematics to solve real-world financial decision problems. The unit will offer useful 'take-home' skills and knowledge relevant both for students who are running (or are planning to run) their own businesses as well as those employed (or seeking employment) in managerial positions within large companies.
