Description

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.
