This unit introduces students to the major concepts and analytical tools used in the theory and practice of financial management in a business organisation. It is designed to provide you with an understanding of:
- The scope and nature of the finance function and its role within management; and
- The theory of finance and how it underpins the evaluation of investment, financing and dividend policies.
This unit also develops your practical skills in the identification and analysis of financial problems. Specifically, this unit considers the role and objectives of strategic financial management, working capital management and capital budgeting. It introduces students to the role and functioning of the capital market and the various sources of finance. This provides the context for understanding the cost of capital, operating and financial leverage, the financial structure decision and dividend policy.
