Fundamentals of Corporate Finance
- Connect: A highly reliable, easy-to-use homework and learning management solution that embeds learning science and award-winning adaptive tools to improve student results.
- The best-selling Fundamentals of Corporate Finance (FCF) has three basic themes that are the central focus of the book:
 1) An emphasis on intuition—the authors separate and explain the principles at work on a common sense, intuitive level before launching into any specifics.
 2) A unified valuation approach—net present value (NPV) is treated as the basic concept underlying corporate finance.
 3) A managerial focus—the authors emphasize the role of the financial manager as decision maker, and they stress the need for managerial input and judgment.
