Sale 90% off

The paperback version is only available for international sales only. This book represents a departure from existing textbooks. Rather than covering methodology, the book introduces decision support systems through real world applications, and uses spreadsheets to model and solve problems. It uses management science techniques (statistics, simulation, probabilistic modeling and optimization), but only as tools to facilitate problem solving. The book embraces George Dantzig's dictum as its premise: "The final test of any theory is its capacity to solve the problems which originated it."

The book is used in the core MBA program at MIT's, Sloan School of Management for the class titled: "Data, Models and Decisions". It is used in over ten universities in both core and elective classes, including Stanford University, Chicago's graduate school of Business, Babson College, among several others.

The book contains many real business cases from the authors consulting experience. There are Powerpoint presentation slides for lecture material, a solution manual and other instructor resources available that can be obtained by contacting the authors directly ( dbertsim@mit.edu , rfreund@mit.edu )

Fundamentals of Corporate Finance/10E

Sale 20% off

The best-selling Fundamentals of Corporate Finance (FCF) is written with one strongly held principle– that corporate finance should be developed and taught in terms of a few integrated, powerful ideas. As such, there are three basic themes that are the central focus of the book: 1) An emphasis on intuition—underlying ideas are discussed in general terms and then by way of examples that illustrate in more concrete terms how a financial manager might proceed in a given situation. 2) A unified valuation approach—net present value (NPV) is treated as the basic concept underlying corporate finance. Every subject covered is firmly rooted in valuation, and care is taken to explain how particular decisions have valuation effects. 3) A managerial focus—the authors emphasize the role of the financial manager as decision maker, and they stress the need for managerial input and judgment.

The Ninth Edition continues the tradition of excellence that has earned Fundamentals of Corporate Finance its status as market leader. Every chapter has been updated to provide the most current examples that reflect corporate finance in today’s world. The supplements package has been updated and improved, and with the new Excel Master online tool, student and instructor support has never been stronger.

Not only while cruising on a sunny breezy highway in a balmy day but also trudging on a wet windy winding road, productivity awareness helps one navigate through a sudden twist in the howling wind, a blinding thunderous driving rain and a screaming cliff lurking around a treacherous bend. Jamal Khan and Wayne Soverall pull no punches in this probing work when they question the desiccated myth of immeasurability of public sector productivity. The authors mount a sustained and impressive attack on uninformed and cynical blather about productivity, narrow technicism, and shallow instrumentality. The headlong momentum of their discourse, propelled by narratives, graphics, data, evidence and analyses, jumps and hums with a bracing vitality.

Students and faculty alike have identified readability and relevance as key strengths of the text. It provides a book that stimulates ideas and keeps all users up-to-date on HRM thinking and practice.
