Course Description

Capital budgeting decisions have long-lasting impacts, and the difference between a good and bad internal investment decision can often be attributed to the capital budgeting process. Several factors make investment decisions using capital budgeting one of the most important functions financial managers are involved with.

  • Capital used to fund investment projects is limited and must be carefully allocated across the entire business.
  • Investments require the use of a large amount of cash, limiting future financial flexibility.
  • If a firm invests too much into a capital project, it could have high depreciation on an asset with limited value.
  • If a firm invests too little into a capital project, it may have limited capacity, putting it at a disadvantage versus competitors.

Timing is important, ideally investment projects are completed as close to when they are needed.

This online webinar provides an overview of the concepts of capital budgeting for investment decision making from the perspective of a finance and accounting organization, emphasizing the integration of cash flows, net present value analysis, risk assessment and risk management.
