International Financial Management is written based on two distinct parts: emphasis on the basics and emphasis on a managerial perspective. The emphasis on the basics will allow students to be left with a framework for analysis that will serve them well when they need to apply this material in their careers in the years ahead. The Fifth Edition never loses sight of the presentation that is teaching students how to make managerial decisions. The new edition is founded in the belief that the fundamental job of the financial manager is to maximize share-holder wealth. This belief permeates the decision-making process that is presented from cover to cover. International Financial Management has been completely updated with the most current data tables and statistics in the field today.
