Problems In Private Finance | by Charles W. Gerstenberg



These problems were originally planned for classes in Private Finance in the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance of New York University. Some of them have been used over a long period of time, having been submitted to the students in mimeograph form. As the value of solving problems of this kind became more apparent, new problems were added and it was decided, for economy's sake, to print them in book form. The problems are to be used with Materials of Corporation Finance and Syllabus of Corporation Finance, by the same author. The chapters in this problem book correspond with the chapters in the syllabus.
