This course helps students understand how firms communicate through financial statements. They learn how to:

  • use financial statement analysis as an integral part of the strategic analysis of firms;
  • interpret financial statements, make judgments about earnings quality, and uncover hidden assets and liabilities;
  • apply financial statement analysis prospectively to forecast and value firms by applying modern accounting-based technologies.

The course has a very practical emphasis, with a wide variety of
cases, in-class exercises, and a group project, all involving
comprehensive analyses of publicly traded companies.
