This subject provides an overview of key elements of finance functions for tertiary education managers.
The subject examines the three strategic decisions of finance: what to invest in, how to finance the investment and how to manage the risk associated with the investment. Investment decisions are those in which organisations commit resources. Students learn various methods of valuation which enable them to determine appropriate means of financing investments. Risk management, including how to manage exposure to risk and unexpected changes in the value of investments, is also covered.
