In this comprehensive course, we will explore the essential concepts of corporate finance, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to make informed financial decisions.
We begin by clarifying the distinctions and connections between finance, accounting, and economics. While accounting focuses on past data and the construction of financial statements, corporate finance utilizes financial statement data to forecast future performance and drive decision-making. We also acknowledge the significance of economics in corporate finance, as economic conditions play a vital role in the decision-making process.
Next, we delve into different forms of business organizations, discussing their characteristics and implications for corporate finance. By understanding the various organizational structures, you will gain insights into the financial considerations associated with each type.
A thorough understanding of the primary financial statements—balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows—is crucial in corporate finance. We provide comprehensive explanations of these statements, their interrelationships, and their role in assessing financial performance and making predictions about the future.
To reinforce your learning, this course includes numerous practice problem examples, including hands-on exercises using Excel worksheets. You will have access to preformatted Excel worksheets with step-by-step instructional videos, allowing you to work through the practice problems in a structured manner.
