Fundamentals of Corporate Finance

Description:    Fundamentals of Corporate Finance offers an innovative integration of conceptual understanding
                and problem-solving… of intuition and decision-making… of the authors’ industry and
                classroom/research experience…with current real-world examples and online practice.

                Fundamentals of Corporate Finance helps students develop the intuition and analytical skills
                necessary to effectively apply financial tools in real-world decision-making situations. Authors
                Robert Parrino and David Kidwell provide a fully integrated framework for understanding how value
                creation relates to all aspects of corporate finance; whether it be evaluating an investment
                opportunity, determining the appropriate financing for a business, or managing working capital.
                This unique and integrated framework also provides robust coverage of problem solving and
                decision-making skills.

                The authors of Fundamentals of Corporate Finance believe that students who understand the
                intuition underlying the basic concepts of finance are better able to develop the critical judgments
                necessary to apply financial tools in real-world decision- making situations. This text develops
                intuitive thinking while simultaneously helping students develop problem solving and computational
                skills. It then shows students how to apply intuition and analytical skills to decision making while
                integrating it all with valuation and building shareholder value.

                Corporate finance books typically focus too much on computations or theories without providing an
                intuitive understanding of the basic principles. This book offers a unique approach helping corporate
                finance professionals develop the critical judgments necessary to apply financial tools in real-world
                decision-making situations. The theme of value creation is integrated throughout the pages to
                demonstrate the relationships between the various concepts. Along with numerous examples, most
                chapters include Learning by Doing applications that contain quantitative problems with step-by-
                step solutions. Decision-Making Checkpoints also provide corporate finance professionals with
                experience in financial decision making.
