Corporate Finance, by Ross, Westerfield, Jaffe, and Jordan, was written for the corporate finance course at the MBA level and the intermediate course in many undergraduate programs. The text emphasizes the modern fundamentals of the theory of finance while providing contemporary examples to make the theory come to life. The authors aim to present corporate finance as the working of a small number of integrated and powerful intuitions rather than a collection of unrelated topics. They develop the central concepts of modern finance: arbitrage, net present value, efficient markets, agency theory, options, and the trade-off between risk and return, and use them to explain corporate finance with a balance of theory and application. The 13th edition also welcomes a special contributor, Professor Kelly Shue of Yale University.
