Financial statements are essential documents, filed by every public company doing business. They represent management’s view of the value and health of their company. But just how accurate are these reports? Is management’s view trustworthy or biased, neutral or overly optimistic? This class will introduce a framework that helps to fully analyze any company’s financial statements and reveal its true condition and value. We will examine the financials of a number of high-visibility companies. An important part of the course will be discussion on corporate social responsibility and its effects on sustainable profitability.
Throughout the semester, we will make extensive use of the valuation software that accompanies the textbook, so that you can gain a hands-on experience with valuation.Through case discussions and the supplementing readings in the text, this course will help you to develop the knowledge, skills, critical thinking abilities and behaviors required of any manager, not only those specialized in finance. Although the main focus of this course is for profit-seeking firms, much of what is learned has applicability for organizations in the not-for-profit and governmental sectors as well.
