Corporate Finance for Business

John-Paul Marney and Heather Tarbert

  • Written especially for business and management students, thereby catering to their needs with accessible coverage of both conceptual and technical material, and frequent considerations of practical management implications of the material presented.
  • Extensively illustrated with interesting and topical real-life cases and examples that help the student engage with the material, better understand concepts, and appreciate the relevance of theoretical and technical material.
  • A very fluid and lively writing style helps the student to understand new and unfamiliar concepts and technical material.
  • Each chapter begins with a carefully developed, integrated running case study, which follows a fictional company from start-up to takeover, helping the student to begin their learning with an appreciation of the context within which the academic theory applies.
  • Reflects the increasingly international nature of corporate finance, by using examples and case studies with a global dimension, ensuring students gain an appreciation of the real world context of corporate financial management.
  • Implicitly and explicitly acknowledges the social and ethical dimensions of corporate finance throughout, helping students to understand the wider implications of theoretical and technical material.
  • Employs an 'active learning' approach which will help to ensure students gain a thorough grounding in the subject, including case study related questions, embedded reflective questions and activities, end-of-chapter practice questions, and suggestions for presentations and group work.
  • Accompanied by an extensive suite of interactive online resources for students, and supporting resources for lecturers, including answers to all questions in the book.
