Financial Management for non-specialists, Second edition
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, make it the ideal introductory text for non-specialist students taking a first course in financial management.
New features of the second edition
· All chapters have been updated and include more real-company data to support the examples
· Case studies have been introduced with questions
· Coverage of corporate governance has been expanded
· End-of-chapter references have been added
Financial Management for non-specialists, Second edition, 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 Certified Diploma, Diploma in Management and MBA programmes. The text is also ideal for finance and accounting students as a foundation for further study.
