Description

In the fourth edition of Introduction to Corporate Finance, authors Laurence Booth and Sean Cleary welcome new author Ian Rakita. The addition of a new author further enhances this already great ground up Canadian text. The fourth edition has been revised to be even more user friendly and engaging. Content has been restructured with additional sub headings in some chapters and the merger of some sections in others—all with the goal of aiding comprehension and retention. The text continues to provide undergraduate students with the most thorough, accessible, accurate, and current coverage of the theory and application of corporate finance within a uniquely Canadian context.  This text will provide students with the skills they need to succeed not only in the undergraduate course, but in their future careers.
