Financial Decision Making improves student's understanding of financial management techniques. The course enables students to better analyze and manage their farming operations. Exercises cover the creation and analysis of financial statements. Quizzes test comprehension of materials provided in the course.

Where to obtain capital?
What mix of equity and debt to use?
What credit rates and terms to negotiate?
How much financial risk to take?
