Every decision made within a company has financial implications, and every decision regarding finance is a decision on corporate finance. Generally, corporate finance represents all activities that are carried out within any business, whether large or small. In the Financial Management course one we begin with a more general introduction to financial and investment decisions. Students will repeat the elements from accounting, and we will start repeating accounting concepts and analyzing financial statements. The concept of long-term financial planning, the link between internal and sustainable corporate growth and external financing, short-term financial planning and working capital management will follow. The second part of the course begins with the overcoming of the time value concept of the money and continues with the valuation of bonds and stocks and the analysis of the investment decision of the company through several key indicators of the attractiveness of the investment project.


Teaching the Financial management course is done using examples and exercises in MS Excel, which keeps track of the course with its content and dynamics. Modern corporate finance is largely done in computer programs, and it
is therefore important for students in practice examples to master basic financial skills in MS Excel. In order for students to master basic financial analysis and planning skills in MS Excel, they need to attend sessions with computers. The ultimate goal of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to understand the theory and apply in real-world situations the techniques that are developed in the field of corporate finance.

Students are expected to come to the classroom and have read the materials before that. Participation in the course will determine the quality of the course and enable the acquisition of new knowledge and verification of their own opinions. Communication with students will be encouraged. We are always open to questions, discussions, suggestions, and suggestions from students, in the classroom, and through other forms of contact: email, phone, and consultation.
