The authors wrote this text in response to the absence in the market of a text that would meet the needs of finance majors, but would still be accessible to all students. In many cases, as many as 80% of undergraduate corporate finance courses are filled with non-finance majors who are either intimidated by this course or who don't understand why they have to take the class (or both!). This text addresses the challenges all professors face: keeping students at varying degrees of ability and interest motivated and invested in the material.
