Corporate Finance I
Students will learn about the finance function as used by management, including financial analysis and control; financial planning; short, intermediate, and long-term financing; and the theory of cost of capital and leverage in planning financial strategies. Aviation-related businesses are emphasized.

This course is designed to provide the student with an exposition of the finance function, its scope and purpose, tools, and techniques available to the financial manager, and methods of measuring financial performance. The course is a survey of finance and serves as the foundation for further study in the field.

2. Evaluate and analyze financial transactions, statements and ratios.

3. Identify, explain and analyze the various components of interest.

4. Evaluate and discuss the implications of the time value of money.

5. Demonstrate the ability to utilize valuation models to evaluate the value of stocks and bonds.

8. Demonstrate the ability to use spreadsheets and other computer software in the financial decision making process.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
