Finance For Executives: A Practical Guide For Managers

 ?A new book from IMD business school professor Nuno Fernandes  LAUSANNE, Switzerland, April 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Ambitious executives know that  understanding finance is increasingly key to their chances of landing that  coveted job-whether it's head of a division, country manager, a broader  regional role or other posts on the way to the C-suite.  The good news is that finance does not need to be complex or painful, as a new  book from IMD business school professor Nuno Fernandes makes clear.  Titled Finance for Executives: A Practical Guide for Managers, the book is  aimed at both financial and non-financial managers. It covers corporate  finance concepts from value creation to derivatives, including cost of capital  (and WACC), valuation, financing policies, M&As, project evaluation, and many  other essential finance definitions-always with a focus on the implications  for managers at all levels.  The book makes finance simple and intuitive by using real-world examples and  mini-case studies, customizable Excel financial modelling tools, and short  chapters to appeal to busy executives. Finance for Executives is a practical  book with the right blend of financial management theory and practice, and  without jargon and complicated math.  The book is highly recommended by senior global executives including Michel  Demaré, Chairman of the Board of Syngenta; Ravi Kant, Vice Chairman of Tata  Motors; Severin Schwan, CEO of Roche Group; and Thilo Mannhardt, CEO of  Ultrapar.  Professor Fernandes is Professor of Finance at IMD, where he directs the  Strategic Finance program as well as many in-house programs for companies and  financial institutions in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. He  is a specialist in corporate finance, cost of capital estimations, project  evaluations, valuation, international financial markets, and emerging market  risks.
