About the Course
PART OF WHARTON’S BUSINESS FOUNDATIONS SPECIALIZATION
See Geoffrey Garrett, Dean of the Wharton School, talk about the Specialization here.
This course provides a framework, concepts, and tools for analyzing financial decisions based on fundamental principles of modern financial theory. You’ll learn the language and key components of corporate finance and investments including calculating present values, the valuation of bonds and stocks, the NPV rule, measuring risk, capital budgeting and the capital asset pricing model. At the end of this course, you’ll be able to read, understand, and explain corporate financial management and investment decisions.
Complete this course as part of Wharton's Business Foundations Specialization, and you'll have the opportunity to take the Capstone Project and prepare a strategic analysis and proposed solution to a real business challenge from Wharton-governed companies like Shazam and SnapDeal or to a challenge faced by your own company or organization. Wharton-trained staff will evaluate the top submissions, and leadership teams at Shazam and SnapDeal will review the highest scoring projects prepared for their companies.
