The goal of this course is to provide a solid foundation in the fundamental tools of financial analysis and finance. Considerable preparation and classroom time will be devoted to exercises and short business case studies that illustrate the tools and techniques being taught. The approach balances theory with hands-on practice and decision-making. The course is split into three modules. Module I will teach students to understand and critically evaluate the financial statements of an enterprise. Module II will give students a basic understanding of the capital budgeting decision process. Module III will teach the basics of how to value an enterprise, including the use of Weighted Average Cost of Capital and the Capital Asset Pricing Model. All of the skills presented over the semester are utilized to discuss and analyze a more complex business case study at the conclusion of the course. If time allows, the final class of the semester will be devoted to related Finance topics that were not otherwise covered in the course, including topics of individual interest to the class.
