Finance is the study of how organizations make decisions in the context of firm value maximization. These decisions involve the analysis of risk/return variables and mathematical models used to measure them. Financial managers in a variety of institutional settings are responsible for decisions concerning such things as firm expansion, dividend policy, working capital management and capital structure.
