Guide students through the material with a proven learning goal system.

Gitman’s proven learning goal system–a hallmark feature of Principles of Managerial Finance–weaves pedagogy into concepts and practice, providing students with a roadmap to guide them through the text and supplementary tools.

The thirteenth edition features new coauthor Chad Zutter of the University of Pittsburgh who brings his contemporary thinking and pedagogy to the text.

NEW! Offer a new perspective: New Coauthor Chad Zutter. A recent recipient of the Jensen Prize for the best paper published in the Journal of Financial Economics, Zutter brings a fresh perspective to thirteenth edition of this text. Together Gitman and Zutter incorporated contemporary thinking and pedagogy with the classic topics that Principles of Managerial Finance users have come to expect.

Guide students through the material: The Proven Learning System. This edition has enhanced its learning goal system, which integrates pedagogy with concepts and practical applications. The system concentrates on the material students need to know in order to make effective financial decisions in an increasingly competitive business environment. The strong pedagogy and generous use of examples–including personal finance examples–make this text an easily accessible resource for in- and out-of-class learning.

Help students make the connections: The Overarching Organization of this text conceptually links the firm’s actions and its value, as determined in the financial market. Each major decision area is presented in terms of both risk and return factors and their potential impact on owner’s wealth. A Focus on Value feature at the end of each chapter helps to reinforce students’ understanding of the link between the financial manager’s actions and the firm’s share value.

Take the concepts abroad: International Considerations. In today’s world international considerations are essential to the study of business in general–and finance in particular. As in prior editions, discussions of international dimensions are integrated throughout the chapters, learning goals, and end-of-chapter content.

  • For instructors who devote more time to international considerations, a separate chapter on international managerial finance is available at the end of the text.
Make it personal: Personal Finance Connection. Several features in the thirteenth edition help students see the value of applying financial principles and techniques to their personal lives:
  • Why This Chapter Matters to You is a feature that helps motivate interest by discussing how the topic relates to the concerns of other major business disciplines and personal finance decisions.
  • Personal Finance examples link the concepts, tools, and techniques of each chapter. Numerous examples of personal finance problems can be found throughout the homework material

New! Examples and applications from various countries in our Chapter Opening Cases and Focus on Practice Boxes, most of which link to Review questions at the end of each chapter

NEW! Enhance the learning experience: New Features.

  • New Chapter Sequence. While similar to the previous edition’s chapter sequence, the thirteenth edition contains nineteen chapters divided into eight parts. Each part is introduced by a brief overview in order to show students the collective value of the chapters in the part.
    • The Matter of Fact! feature provides additional detail and interesting empirical facts that help students understand the practical implications of financial concepts.
    • The In More Depth! feature–available on MyFinanceLab–offers a guide for further study.
