Finance is the art and science of managing capital.

Course Description

Finance is the art and science of managing capital.  Virtually all individuals and organizations earn, raise, spend or invest capital and the study of Finance provides a consistent framework for financial decision making by these agents.  This course is intended to be an introduction to the basic concepts and practices of Finance with a special emphasis on the Pakistan financial system.  A fairly wide range of topics will be covered to give you a “feel” for what Finance is, and what it is not.  This course involves the evaluation of a firm’s financial situation, the determination of its short-term and long-term financial needs. The various forms of capital structure and its impact on the financial viability of the company will be studied. Technical aspects of the course will include calculation of the net present value, weighted cost of capital and the cost of equity. The course will also explore the Islamic modes of financing such as Modarba, Musharika and some of the new instruments being floated in the Pakistan Capital Markets such as the Term Finance Certificates (TFC’s) and the Eurobond issues by the Pakistani companies.

This course will be very demanding in terms of the time required to study, understand and apply new concepts.  It is suggested that students allocate a sizable chunk of their time to prepare for the classes and complete all assignments from day one.
