Principles of Finance with Excel, 2nd edition (now at Amazon)

Like its predecessor, PFE2 integrates principles of finance with Excel.  The first edition has been widely adopted for classroom use, both in introductory finance courses and as a text for computer applications in finance. The second edition, published by Oxford University Press in October 2010, has been updated, while maintaining the same integration between learning finance and doing Excel.  All the Excel examples now refer to Excel 2007; compatibility with Excel 2003 and the new Excel 2010 has been maintained. PFE2 includes a disk with all the book examples, making it an ideal learning tool.

Sofaer International MBA at Tel Aviv University

I direct the Sofaer IMBA at Tel Aviv University, a one-year, intensive MBA at Israel’s best business school.  Our current class has students from 21 countries and a heavy sprinkling of courses in areas where Israel’s high-tech economy excels:  High-tech marketing, high-tech M&A, bio-tech management, entrepreneurship, financial engineering, and more.  The generosity of the Sofaer family enables us to give scholarships to outstanding students.  Check us out on our webpage or write us a letter for more information.
