Financial decisions are made at all levels of management and thus are at the very heart of all organisations. Managers have broadly three major responsibilities in the financial domain which include investment decisions, financing decisions and managing financial risks. Sound financial decisions can help ensure the survival of organisations in an uncertain global environment. Broadly, this module will deal with the first two tasks. The aim of this module is to provide an introduction to modern theories of financial management and to show how to apply the theory to realistic financial decision problems.
