Please join us in congratulating our colleague Bradley C. Barnhorst, CFA on the recent release of Managerial Finance, Version 1.0, a textbook he co-authored with Dr. Amy K. S. Scott. This textbook will be used in the teaching of managerial finance, financial management, and corporate finance courses taught at the undergraduate level in two- and four-year colleges and universities as well as at the graduate level, including in MBA coursework.
The textbook is described as having “…an unusually robust integration of theory and practical application. Development of financial ‘intuition’ and the ability to successfully apply learning to new situations is the primary goal of the book. Consequently, the learning strategy first encourages students to understand concepts before equations and discussion of operations are presented. To support the development of financial intuition, each core theoretical concept is supported by numerically based applications. All theory and application are presented in the context of decision making within an ethical stakeholder model.”
Bradley is the Associate Professor, Chair of Finance Major, and CFP Program Director at DeSales University. We are grateful for his expertise and wisdom as Investment Committee Counsel here at Canon Capital.
We appreciate the sacrifice of time and work that went into the creation of this textbook and would like to thank Bradley and Dr. Amy K. S. Scott for this contribution to the education of the next generation of financial professionals.
