This unit aims to provide students with a foundation understanding of the types of financial decisions that need to be taken in order to create value within the firm. Students will develop analytical skills for making key financial management decisions, including fundamental 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.
