Course Description

This course develops the analytical skills necessary to evaluate business and investment opportunities based on available financial statements. A primary goal is developing the ability to use and interpret the annual reports of major corporations. Although similar to intermediate financial accounting, this course is taught from the perspective of the user rather than the preparer of financial statements. The course provides a realistic and organized approach to reviewing financial statements and develops a student's ability to glean relevant information from financial statements as well as an appreciation of the limitations of publicly available financial data. Students will work extensively with computer spreadsheets.

Prerequisites: FINA3000, STAT2110, FINA3100, and INFS1020
