FIN 280 - Financial Statement Analysis


Financial statements are ubiquitous in business. Whether a manager, a regulator, a lender, or an investor, one needs to examine a firm’s financial statements to understand what is happening in the company. This course focuses on understanding the integration and relationship of financial statements and develops students’ ability to analyze financial statements. Using case studies of real firms, students will learn the information available on the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. Students will also complete other projects that will develop their analytical skills
 and their comprehension of how various business activities affect the flow of information across the financial statements. (Previously listed as ACCT 280) Prerequisite: C- or better in ACCT 217. Fall, Spring
