The course is designed as a continuation of BUS 605, introducing you to additional financial theories, practices, and processes by which major decisions are made by corporate financial managers. It includes a discussion of the cost of capital, capital budgeting (return on investment analysis), capital structure decisions, shareholder distributions, the management of working capital, multinational financial management, and several special topics.

This course examines the marketing mix and its role in strategically positioning the firm. The course uses a consumer product-based simulation to practice management decision-making and competitive behavior.
