About The Course
This course is the third in the four-course Specialization Essentials of Corporate Financial Analysis and Decision-Making.
In this course you will develop not only an understanding of the different decisions that firms face on a day-to-day basis, but also an appreciation for how these decisions might be made in a way that can maximize firm value.
Instructors from the University of Melbourne, together with their partners at BNY Mellon, demonstrate the importance of these decisions by direct reference to a wide array of real-life examples featuring some of the largest public companies in the world.
- A basic knowledge of statistics and an ability to employ simple algebra to solve straightforward problems
- Familiarity with Microsoft Excel (or a functionally-equivalent spreadsheet program). Specifically participants should possess the ability to summarise data using the graphical tools contained within that program.
- Apart from that, a natural curiosity about not only how markets operate, but also how participants in those markets gather and then transform information so as to make financial decisions that maximise firm value
