Option 2: It's All in the Numbers: Applications of Financial Concepts


Join us for Finance 101 - an introduction into applications of financial concepts for non-finance people. We will examine how we can measure the profitability of cash flows, the trade-off between debt and equity, the cost of capital, and how to evaluate the value of different projects or investments. We will also learn how the risk profile of a project can impact investment returns and will review some commonly used metrics to measure the viability of a project, such as the IRR, NPV, ROI, and payback period.
