Principles of Finance

Module code: EC2022

Living in a post-financial crash world, it is important to understand the theoretical frameworks of global finances and their potential implications from a practical point of view. This module will begin with the quantitative foundations of different firm’s financial management and what role this plays within the financial cycle. 

With this you will have a greater awareness on how companies and firms deal with capital budgeting - allocating expenses for long term investments for equipment, products or projects. Supplementary to this, you will discover the process of project appraisal - assessing whether a project or proposal should proceed using decision analysis techniques in real-world scenarios.
