Product Description

From the Back Cover

Some chapters are truly excellent - the value management chapter being a case in point... The author is clearly someone who cares passionately about the subject matter and who has a tremendous command over it.

Heather Tarbert, Senior Lecturer, Accounting and Finance Subject Group, Caledonian Business School, Glasgow Caledonian, UK


The key strengths of this book are its style, the intuitive explanations and it readiness to approach controversial topics.

Poul Wolffsen, Lecturer, Roskilde University, Denmark


A particular strength of the book are the case studies taken from the world of finance/business in order to expound the variety of concepts and theories in finance.

Dr Kadom Shubber, Senior Lecturer and Module Leader of Modern Finance, Westminster Business School, University of Westminster, UK


Essentials of Corporate Financial Management supports courses designed to cover the core topics of finance in 15 to 30 hours of lectures. The book is primarily aimed at undergraduate students studying finance as part of a business related degree, MBA students and others studying finance at business schools. It also provides the foundation elements needed by students going on to study more advanced finance.

The step-by-step learning approach enables students to achieve a high level of financial knowledge without assuming a prior knowledge of finance. Selected core topics and key concepts are delivered with depth, allowing students to gain an understanding of the topical debates within this field, where disagreement or alternative perspectives lead to lively discussion.

This book is a requirement of my course and it's easy to see why. Arnold descriptively explains each section of the essentials of corporate financial management often breaking it down into examples that clearly demonstrate calculations.
