Essential Financial Management Curriculum

A Unit Approach (First Edition)
By Robert Fiore

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62661-206-8, 384 pages


Functioning as a complete curriculum package, the innovative textbook Essential Financial Management Curriculum covers corporate finance in a series of 3-page “bites,” each of which concludes with a quiz.

Focusing on mathematical and complex concepts, the book is a complete, step-by-step, unit-by-unit curriculum that can be used as homework or in-class work to help students master corporate and managerial finance.

Topics include time value mathematics, financial assets, and ratio analysis. Students will also learn about forecasting and cash budgeting, capital budgeting tools, and risk and return.

Essential Financial Management Curriculum is suitable for undergraduate courses at community colleges and four-year university business programs. The day-by-day activity package, reading, and quiz allow for complete ease of implementation. References to real-world illustrations encourage in-class discussions. The book can also be used in MBA finance courses for students who have not taken introductory finance.
