In this introductory Corporate Finance or Business Finance course, I tried to address the basic question: What is finance, and how its management in a business firm can be done. The course also talks about the various objectives of financial management in a corporate firm. An understanding of business finance, sources of business finance, various financial decision areas, financial risk, and requirements of fixed and working capital is helpful and is essential for running a successful business. The role of financial management has a direct impact on the financial health of a corporate firm. Financial management decisions affect the financial health of a business enterprise and its financial statements like Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss accounts get impacted by such decisions. Understanding these jargons are important for anyone who is interested in  Corporate or Business Finance.
