Principles of Finance with Excel

Second Edition

Simon Benninga

Finance is a topic that requires much computation, and in today's business world that computation is done almost entirely using Excel software. Despite this, existing finance textbooks continue to rely heavily on hand calculators. Business school students--whose background in Excel software is often weak when they come into finance courses--find that when they leave the academic environment they have to relearn both finance and the software. Addressing this issue, Principles of Finance with Excel is the only introductory finance text that comprehensively integrates the program into the teaching and practice of finance. Offering exceptional resources for students and instructors, the book combines classroom-tested pedagogy with the powerful functions of Excel software. Author Simon Benninga--one of the most recognized names in financial modeling--shows students how spreadsheets provide new and deeper insights into financial decision making.

New to this Edition:

  • Offers a streamlined structure that allows students to dive right into the heart of finance: time value of money and discounting
  • Provides updated examples, most of which refer to the post-2008-crash financial world
  • Uses Microsoft Excel 2007 throughout (all examples and spreadsheets are compatible with previous versions of the program)
  • The free in-text CD-ROM includes electronic spreadsheets for the entire book
