A balanced overview of financial management theory and practice
Finance is one of the key drivers of a firm's activities, and a critical component to understanding business in general. Financial Management: Concepts and Applications is designed to help students with no prior knowledge grasp the applications and relevance of finance. Author Stephen Foerster reveals the practical side of finance, rather than just its theoretical concepts, and shows how finance intersects with many other areas of business.
This program provides a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. It will help you to:
Encourage students to focus on the big picture: A thematic approach helps students achieve a holistic view of how finance impacts many aspects of business.

Foster thorough understanding via learning aids: Various tools, throughout the text and at the end of each chapter, support students as they learn and review.
Personalize learning with MyFinanceLab: This online homework, tutorial, and assessment program provides students the help they need, when they need it, and allows unlimited practice.
