Introduction to Finance: Markets, Investments, and Financial Management, 15th Edition

توضیحات

The fifteenth edition of Introduction to Finance: Markets, Investments, and Financial Management builds upon the successes of its earlier editions while maintaining a fresh and up-to-date coverage of the field of finance.

Distinguished authors Ron Melicher and Edgar Norton continue to cover the three major financial areas:  institutions and markets, investments, and financial management. Their effective structure equips instructors with maximum flexibility for how the course is taught, and students with an integrated perspective of the different foundations of finance. 

This survey of the basic knowledge, concepts, and terms of the discipline is appropriate for all students. For those who do not plan to take additional courses in finance, it provides a valuable overview.  For those who want to take additional coursework in finance, it provides a solid foundation for their future studies and careers.
