  • Section 2 : Financial Analysis 1 Lectures 00:08:43

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Financial Analysis
    • Financial analysis is a core skill in finance. It involves analyzing and interpreting financial information to evaluate performance or set future expectations. In this lesson, I’ll give an overview, but you should also consider taking our in-depth financial literacy course to supplement this lesson.
  • Section 3 : Cash Forecast 1 Lectures 00:02:50

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Cash Forecast
    • Finance often trying to predict the future. The cash flow forecast is the foundation of many types of financial analysis. In this lesson, we give an overview of what's involved.
  • Section 4 : Present Value 1 Lectures 00:12:51

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Present Value
    • In finance, we always want to ensure we are comparing apple-to-apples. One way we do this is to calculate the present value of different types of opportunities. This puts all the different projects on an even footing. It's an economic perspective of value, not an accounting perspective. In this lesson, I’ll teach you the basics of calculating present value.
  • Section 5 : Future Value 1 Lectures 00:07:07

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Future Value
    • Sometimes we want to know how much money we will have at a date in the future. When this is the objective, we need to calculate future value. In this lesson, I am going to go through the basics of how to approach this calculation using a retirement planning context.
  • Section 6 : Rate of Return and Adding Debt 1 Lectures 00:13:57

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Rate of Return and Adding Debt
    • Things get a little more interesting in this lesson. I begin with an overview of what is debt and equity and discuss how the rate of return for these instruments is determined. Then I will talk about how debt, when used responsibly, can be used to leverage returns or minimize the cost of capital. This is one key way that corporate finance can add significant value to the organization.
  • Section 7 : Risk Management and Derivatives 1 Lectures 00:12:39

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Risk Management and Derivatives
    • Risk management can be a very complicated topic, but in this lesson, let's see if I can make it simpler for you to understand. Even some finance professionals shudder when you mention the idea of a derivative instrument. Let's face it, they've got a bit of a bad rep for the role they played in the last Great Recession. However, these instruments are another important corporate finance tool for managing and mitigating financial risks to a business. So let's not get scared off by them. Instead, let's see if we can sort them out together.
  • Section 8 : Finance in Practice 1 Lectures 00:06:57

    • Lecture 1 :
    • Finance in Practice
    • So now that you have a few of the really important corporate finance principles under your belt, let me show you how finance get's used in practice by taking a virtual tour of the finance department. What you'll notice is that finance is pervasive knowledge topic that has implications for many roles in the finance function.
