Business Finance is the introductory finance course in the BBA curriculum. In this course, we review the fundamental principles of business finance and consider finance functions as they relate to other organizational roles. More specifically, we start with financial statement analysis, introduce the key concept of “Time Value of Money” and apply it in stock and bond valuation techniques. In addition, we cover capital budgeting, capital market theory, and risk and return. Students are expected to develop skills to become sound decision makers through this course. In addition to analytical skills, I will provide opportunities for students to practice critical thinking skills, which are highly valuable for students’ future career.

Hybrid Class, Fall 2020

This is an advanced study of the requirements for and sources of funds in the business organizations. The course deals with both long and short-term aspects of finance with emphasis placed on analysis and decision-making.

 

In this course, students will be trained to:

  • Review and extend their knowledge in financial theories.

  • Build analytical reasoning and decision-making skills.

  • Apply financial theory to specific applications including financial problem solving and case analysis.

  • Have basic financial model-building skills.

  • Work in groups to solve problems, make decisions, and prepare professional reports/presentations.

  • His enthusiasm and assignments were the best part of this class. The assignments helped me better understand the material. He was also able to teach in an effective way.

  • Professor Xu is probably my favorite professor I have taken at UW- Whitewater. He really cares that his students understand the material and he really wants his students to succeed. Not only does he go over the information on the test really well, he also goes above and beyond and gives his students advice. He teaches finance not just because he wants all of us to get good grades but he really wants all of us to be happy with the job we pick. Finance is not an easy topic to understand and the professor can only do so much but he tries his hardest that every student succeeds. I would tell everyone who takes Finance to try and take Professor Xu because he actually cares and is a great teacher and mentor.

  • This class exceeded my expectations in every way. Weineng Xu is the most organized professor I have ever had and he goes out of his way to help any and all students with course content. He relates finance to all other business majors and talks about how it applies to current events.

  • This class was my favorite by far. You put so much effort into making everything understandable and making sure the course was the way the students wanted it to be. You cared so much about helping each and every one of us, and that's something I appreciate more than anything.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed having you as a professor. You were always well organized and taught things in a practical manner.

  • Out of all my classes, you are easily my best professor. I don't think I've ever met a professor as dedicated as you are. I thoroughly enjoyed this class.
