Building on Finance 1, Finance 2 takes a broad approach for non-finance specialists and further addresses the principal issues that are of concern to the general manager and to all those needing to make financial decisions. These include, but are not limited to, nett present value, measures of risk and return, the capital asset pricing model, the financing decision, financial instruments, and derivative securities. By the end of the module, you will have developed knowledge of investment appraisal, including the time-value of money, and the measurement and treatment of risk. You will also know the fundamental characteristics of financial markets and financial instruments (such as stocks, bonds, and derivatives). Finally, you will have knowledge and understanding of corporate capital structures and its implications for a firm's cost of capital.
