Why is capital budgeting such an important process? Why are capital budgeting errors so costly? Differentiate between NPV, PI, and IRR methods. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using each of these methods? Why is there a focus on cash flows rather than accounting profits in making capital-budgeting decisions? Why such an interest in incremental cash flows rather than total cash flows?

**Make sure you are using credible sources in your assignments. Scholarly journals are the preferred source of credible/quality references. These consist of peer-reviewed articles published in academic journals related to the field, which are found via our Library.  Websites such as Investopedia,,, or dictionary-type of websites limit the insight to the topics. Wikipedia is not acceptable as it is not a reliable, credible source of reference. The purpose is to bring in new information and how does it apply to our topic from a real-world perspective, instead of extending on definitions that are found in the book.


Please use this course book:
Keown, A. J., Martin, J. D., & Petty, J. W. (2014). Foundations of finance: The logic and practice of financial management (8th ed.). Boston: Pearson.
