FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will examine financial statement analysis form the point of view of the primary users: equity and credit analysts. Students will gain an understanding of how financial statements are constructed in order to separate the economic process that generates the numbers from the accounting process that at times obfuscates them. Each topic is focussed on a specific area of analysis and the effect of differences in accounting methods and estimates on reported financial conditions, results of operations and financial ratios is highlighted. International accounting differences are discussed and relevant empirical research findings are considered.
