This edition integrates the latest from Duke University's CFO Global Business Outlook, a quarterly survey of financial executives that gauges business outlook and topical economic issues. The authors have refined this practical, accessible text to correspond with the way you teach your MBA-level course. Engaging examples, meaningful cases, and practical exercises reflect how changing events and recent financial crises relate to established finance principles.
Cross-functional applications and career success features, such as actual job interview questions in the margins, make the book applicable to both finance majors and general business professionals. Time-saving online Smart Finance tools further reinforce learning with integrated tutorials, interactive practice, and videos from leading finance researchers introducing the latest theories and concepts.
