The third Canadian edition of Brigham’s Financial Management: Theory and Practice delivers solid financial theory and practical applications, preparing students for future careers in business and finance in an engaging manner that makes the content come alive. This resource emphasizes the actions that a manager should take to increase the value of the firm. Structuring the book around valuation and cash flows enhances continuity and helps students see how topics relate to one another. The hallmark of this resource is “The Corporate Valuation Framework”, a pedagogical feature presented early in each chapter. By highlighting specific parts of the framework, the model explicitly shows how each chapter relates to corporate valuation.
The book begins with fundamental concepts, including background on the economic and financial environment, financial statements (with an emphasis on cash flows), the time value of money, financial forecasting, bond valuation, risk analysis, and stock valuation. With this background, students then learn specific techniques and decision rules that can be used to help maximize the value of the firm.
