Long description

This text adopts an open-learning approach to introduce the main principles of financial management in an accessible, non-technical way. It presents a comprehensive range of topics, but avoids too much detail and unnecessary mathematical analysis, focusing more on the practical application of financial management and its role in decision-making. This, coupled with the excellent pedagogical features, with clear worked examples and activities integrated throughout, makes it the ideal introductory text for non-specialist students taking a first course in financial management. Financial Management for Non-specialists is aimed both at undergraduates from a non-finance/accounting discipline, taking an introductory module in financial management and postgraduate/experienced students on courses such as the ACCA Diploma in Financial Management, Diploma in Management and MBA programmes. The text is also ideal for finance and accounting students as a foundation for further study. - New, lively and up-to-date examples and exhibits, providing greater international coverage and insights into small businesses. - Even more real-company data to support the examples.;- New Companion Website with lecturer support, powerpoints and assessment questions, plus further links, questions and longer cases for students. - New chapter on Measuring and Managing Shareholder value. - Thorough revision of chapters on investment appraisal, forecast financial statements and financing a business.
