WMBA 6680 - Financial Management Tools for Decision Making


(3 sem. cr.) Effective business managers use a variety of financial management tools as they seek to evaluate alternatives and make sound decisions. In this course, students analyze these tools, including the breakeven and cost-volume-profit analysis for model pricing and cost sensitivity, forecasting and cost prediction, variance cost analysis, relevant cost analysis, project valuation and prioritization using payback, rates of return, and discounted cash flow methods. Students sharpen their diagnostic critical-thinking skills and learn to construct effective, ethical, fact-based arguments, which are among the fundamental capabilities required for managerial decision making. Using relevant management articles, case studies, and topic analyses, students also examine how to align business needs with fact-based solutions, how to identify new opportunities, and how to manage and enhance an organization’s competitive position.
