About the Book

The objective of Corporate Financial Management, 3rd edition is to introduce those principles essential to the understanding of financial problems and policies that financial managers use to contend with those problems. To achieve this objective, the text stresses practical application in a user-friendly format. Corporate Financial Management is suitable for both undergraduate- and graduate-level core courses in finance, financial management and corporate finance. The text is written in a clear, concise and practical manner. Readers will be exposed to all of the key tools and techniques of financial management and corporate finance without a complex treatment of theoretical financial concepts. The book includes twelve short cases designed to illustrate a series of real-life, current, and decision-oriented financial problems. The cases enable students to strengthen their practical understanding of financial concepts and techniques. Without the added expense of a separate casebook, students can apply what that have learned in practical settings.
