Finance is a topic that requires much computation, and in today's business world that computation is almost entirely done using Microsoft Excel. Despite this, existing finance textbooks continue to rely heavily on hand calculators, and business school students - whose background in Excel isoften weak when they come into finance courses - find that when they leave the academic environment they have to relearn both finance and Excel. The second edition of Principles of Finance with Excel comprehensively integrates Excel into the teaching of finance. It covers the same topics that standard financial textbooks cover, including portfolios, capital asset pricing models, stock and bond valuation, capital structure and dividendpolicy, and option pricing, and thus can be used in any introductory course. However, it also comprehensively introduces Excel as it applies to finance students and practitioners, including features like graphs, function data tables, dates in Excel, Goal Seek and Solver, and data manipulation. Simon Benninga, perhaps the most recognizable name in financial modeling, and author of an extremely successful modeling textbook, shows students how a spreadsheet can provide new and deeper insights into financial decision making. This book should appeal to a wide array of professors teachingcourses on the principles of finance at the undergraduate level, as well as Master's programs in finance and business, and financial practitioners who want to develop or to refresh their Excel skills.
Simon Benninga is professor of finance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and at Tel Aviv University. He is the author of numerous articles and three previous books. His books on financial modeling and valuation are now standards in the field of finance.
