2018/2019, Semester 1
School of Business (Dean's Office (Biz))
Modular Credits: 4
This is an introductory course that aims to provide a strong conceptual foundation for finance.
The course has two primary objectives. The first objective is to build the vocabulary and comprehensive conceptual understanding needed to engage with financial managers and market participants. The second objective is to use finance theory to solve practical problems faced by financial managers. You will find it beneficial to have some basic knowledge of accounting, algebra, and statistics prior to enrolling in this course.
By design, and by necessity, the course will not cover in depth every topic introduced in the lectures. Nonetheless, it lays a strong foundation on which you can build further via more advanced coursework offered as part of the MBA curriculum.
