Applied Corporate Finance 4th Edition
Aswath Damodaran, distinguished author, Professor of Finance, and David Margolis, Teaching Fellow at the NYU Stern School of Business, have delivered the newest edition of Applied Corporate Finance. This readable text provides the practical advice students and practitioners need rather than a sole concentration on debate theory, assumptions, or models. Like no other text of its kind, Applied Corporate Finance, 4th Edition applies corporate finance to real companies. It now contains six real-world core companies to study and follow. Business decisions are classified for students into three groups: investment, financing, and dividend decisions.
The first Australian edition of Corporate Finance offers a dynamic, modern and practical approach that illustrates how financial management really works. Corporate Finance features up-to-date content including the impact of the Global Financial Crisis and capital budgeting. The strong five part framework is supported by integrated online elements and easy-to-read text.
