Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

M: Finance was developed for the undergraduate corporate finance course and designed with today's student in mind. With years of teaching experience as well market development, the author team developed a text to reflect that this critical course covers so many crucial topics and that instructors need to focus on core ideas to ensure that students are getting the preparation they need for future classes—and for their lives beyond college.  

The framework for M: Finance emphasizes three themes: (1) Finance is about connecting core concepts, (2) Finance can be taught using a personal perspective, and (3) Finance focuses on solving problems and decision making. The text also features concise chapters that lead students to crucial material by emphasizing core concepts, key research, and current topics. Personal examples in the text explain the concepts' relevance to students' lives, increasing their motivation to learn more. Because finance focuses on problem-solving and decision making, this text includes numerous exercises that target various learning styles.
