Financial Strategies and Topics in Finance is a collection of Professor Emeritus Harold Bierman, Jr.’s public lectures on corporate finance, given on behalf of the Johnson School of Business, Cornell University, from 1960 to 2015.
By explaining complex financial strategies in a simplified manner, Professor Bierman makes corporate finance accessible to the non-expert reader as well. This collection of lectures covers highly relevant topics with financial insights and implications, that are very important to business managers and individual investors. Complex business decisions are simplified, allowing the logic of the decision process to become readily apparent.
As Professor Bierman writes, "A good business education will build on the basic financial tool of the time value of money and the net present value calculation. The lectures presented in this book are consistent with good present value calculations."
