Upon successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to: explain the basic concept of corporate financial management for decision making; apply and compare tools for making major financial decisions (investing, financing, analyzing, and planning); and demonstrate working knowledge as a finance professional to comprehend and relate the three major financial decisions for maximizing a stockholder’s value.
In this digital era, data is at the center of business models, while information replaces capital as the key asset and drives how finance operates. To maximize the stakeholder’s value, this course emphasizes contemporary issues in financial decision-making such as investing, financing, analyzing and planning, risks, returns, stocks and bonds, investment decisions, cost of capital, valuing business, risk management, and value creation. To better manage the overall financial performance, the role of financial executives has broadened to
include working with other functions to provide the systems and data needed to monitor the performance, analyze and address supply chain issues, and align supply chain management with other financial indicators. Nonetheless, the arrival of digital technology and the use of big data analytics affect the way financial executives participate in strategic decision making. Even further, the complexity and variables considered to rule the right course of action are proving to be increasingly challenging.
