This module has three primary topics: the valuation of a series of cash flows, return on investment, and the construction of an amortization schedule. Knowing how to use financial tools, understanding the premise of present and future value, and being able to analyze loan terms are important concepts for managers, leaders, and general daily decision-making. In this module, we will examine and evaluate formulas and variables to examine financing options and consider how changes in loan and payment terms can impact organizational effectiveness and your own personal financial management success. We will continue our work using both equations and an Excel spreadsheet. Make sure to read all of the required readings this week and complete the Check Your Understanding activity.
