This course is designed to introduce you the methods and tools to make finance related decisions, both at work and for your personal life.
The main book used by this course is Ivo Welch's Corporate Finance, the good news is, it is also available free online.
Based on the rave reviews from Amazon, I can tell Ivo Welch's Corporate Finance book is a book written for MBA finance course, which I believe you can largely interpret as anyone with a college degree can take it, because the background of MBA students is very diverse, from pure liberal arts major to math whizs.
If you are interested in getting a free systematic education on Finance, I highly recommend this book.
One thing about the textbook, Amazon shows $523 price tag, you shouldn't pay this much for it, just a used version at Amazon at a fraction of that price should work.
