Strategic and Financial Decision-Making

Module code: ACFI 5022

Module description

This elective module is designed specifically to consider corporate strategic investment decisions and the underlying financial management issues relevant to these decisions. The module will focus on the allocation of funds within the business and the financial appraisal techniques used in evaluating strategic options. The financing of investment opportunities will then be considered and particular attention will be paid to sources of funds, the cost of those funds and alternative financing strategies. The module will be considered within the context of adding shareholder value.

As the module is concerned with long-term planning and control it is particularly suited to the strategic theme of a masters business programme.

The module can operate as either a self-contained, coherent unit of study, or as part of an overall accounting and finance framework for those students who wish to pursue a degree of specialisation.
