Business Finance is an accessible introduction to decision making in firms - what investments a company should make and how they should be financed. Taking a user's perspective, this highly successful textbook blends the theoretical, analytical and practical aspects of the subject, providing an up-to-date introduction to finance and investment. The book sets out the theories surrounding financial decision making and relates these theories to what happens in practice, in the real world. Where theory and practice diverge, the book attempts to reconcile and explain the differences.

It is also suitable for postgraduate programmes, particularly those where accounting and finance is not the main focus of the programme. Professional accounting students should also find the book helpful in their studies.
