Description:
This course was formerly known as FINC 940-A
This course, which builds on the foundational skills of analyzing and forecasting parts of a business, teaches students how to weave their forecasts into coherent spreadsheet-based, pro-forma financials. The course starts with conceptual examples that explain linkages between the three core financial statements (IS/BS/CF), it then builds on these examples to forecast the financial statements of real companies. The main goal of this course is to illustrate how a practitioner would analyze a leveraged buyout. Students will construct their own LBO model in Excel and, by the end of the course, should feel comfortable assessing a company and determining if it is a viable LBO candidate.

Prerequisites:
All Students: (ACCT-430-0 OR ACCT-438-B OR ACCT-434-0 OR ACCT-440-0) AND (FINC-440-0 OR FINC-441-0 OR FINC-431-0)
