About the Book: Finance for Executives: Managing for Value Creation
Ideal for both aspiring managers and experienced executives, the Fourth Edition of Finance for Executives: Managing for Value Creation illustrates the importance of financial information in maximizing firm value. Respected authors Gabriel Hawawini and Claude Viallet draw on their wealth of business and teaching experience to provide a concise, analytically sound introduction to financial management that is neither too simplistic nor too theoretical. In fact, the text masterfully balances a thorough exploration of modern finance principles with a strong practical focus on real-world applications and rigorous analysis, even while avoiding complicated formulas with little value for decision-making. Perfect for executive education courses, M.B.A. programs, or any class with an emphasis on translating theory into practice or learning through real-world cases, FINANCE FOR EXECUTIVES employs a strong problem-scenario approach to present key concepts within the context of realistic financial management issues that executives commonly face. In addition, a series of integrated case studies analyzes the same set of companies throughout the text to explore concepts in greater depth and reinforce learning. The new Fourth Edition maintains the text's highly reader-friendly structure and presentation. Because each chapter is self-contained, instructors can enjoy great flexibility in structuring their courses, while students will find the text an invaluable reference and resource to use throughout their careers. In addition, the current edition features extensive updates incorporating the most recent financial data and latest references, as well as a new chapter devoted to managing corporate risk, an essential topic for success in today's high-stakes business environment.
