B136/GEB1011 Module 5 Discussion

The company that you work for (as identified in Modules 1-4 **my career that I chose for this class was Human Resources Coordinator for the company Amazon) is considering opening an additional facility in a nearby city. This is going to be a fairly costly venture, so your department has been asked to research financing options for this expansion. Securing a building will require long-term financing, and purchasing office furniture and a few computers would be accomplished with the help of short-term financing.
Analyze the pros and cons of purchasing the building using bank financing compared to the pros and cons of renting. Provide a recommendation and explain your rationale. Analyze whether the office furniture should be purchased using the company credit card or whether it should be leased. Provide a recommendation and explain your rationale.
