Overview

Using the valuation framework based on the Law of One Price, top researchers Jonathan Berk and Peter DeMarzo have set the new canon for corporate finance textbooks. Corporate Finance: The Core, 5th Edition blends coverage of time-tested principles and the latest advancements with the practical perspective of the financial manager. Students have the opportunity to “practice finance to learn finance” by solving quantitative business problems like those faced by today’s professionals. With built-in resources to help students master the core concepts, students develop the tools they need to make sound financial decisions in their careers.
