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.
