Making investment decisions is something we do every single day, sometimes without even realizing it. When we think about investing, we think about "big money" and long-term commitments. But at the core of it, investing is nothing more than spending money and expecting a good return on it.
This course teaches the net present value (NPV) methodology, an investment evaluation formula used by countless publicly traded companies and financial analysts, in a way that makes it accessible and applicable to you—no finance background required. Rudolph Rosenberg explains what investments are, how they are measured, and what makes a good investment. Then he explores the NPV formula in depth, showing you how to evaluate your cash flows, choose a rate of return, and assess the risk of a particular investment. This all culminates in a look at how the principles of investment apply to three real-life scenarios that any individual or company might encounter.
* Understanding ROI
* What makes a good investment?
* Using the NPV formula
* Assessing risk
* Applying NPV to real-life situations
