Finance is everywhere in business. Even if you do not realise it, most activities and outcomes in a business are measured in financial terms. Understanding how decisions are made, how resources are allocated, how your performance is measured, and the financial consequences of your actions will improve your success as a manager.

In your personal capacity and as a consumer, you will make financial decisions when you compare prices of products, when you buy on credit, while banking, when purchasing insurance and when investing in real estate. Studying finance helps make you a smarter consumer and investor.
