Course Topics


These lessons cover the basics of working with single and multiple cash flows. Our temporal perspective can be forward looking (projecting future cash flows) or backward looking (computing the current value of future cash flows).

Solution methods include manual formula sequences, spreadsheets, and financial calculators. We strongly recommend focusing on spreadsheet solutions to build facility with the pervasive MBA analytical tool.
