2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will develop knowledge and skills in financial management. The subject will facilitate advanced understanding of financial management policy and application, and how financial management decision-making affects the risk, growth and profitability of firms and, combining these elements, firm valuation outcomes. You will consider financial management outcomes, and particularly the underlying goal of the maximisation of the valuation of the firm, through the key decision-making areas investment, financing and distribution decisions. In turn, this will incorporate the consideration of the requisite usage of debt and equity financing and the need for efficient management of working capital to ensure adequate liquidity and short-term resource and cash flow availability.
