Evaluate your financial past while assessing future projections for effective managerial decision-making

The interpretation of financial information (financial statement analysis) and the process of choosing between competing investment opportunities (capital budgeting) are fundamental facets of managerial decision-making. These two components are presented in an integrated way which is intended to highlight their conceptual relation and their complementary role in the context of effective managerial decision-making. 

Choosing the best investment opportunities requires careful analysis—of where your organization has been and where it is going.
