Course Description:

ACC7502-Financial Statement and Sustainability Analysis for Entrepreneurial Leaders (1.5 credits) Note that students who take ACC7502 may not take ACC7500, and vice versa. ACC7502-Financial Statement and Sustainability Analysis for Entrepreneurial Leaders (1.5 credits) This course is targeted for entrepreneurs, managers, and anyone who wants to improve their financial analysis skill but doesn't require the deeper dive provided in ACC7500 (3 credits). The focus will be on analyzing the impact of various revenue streams, ESG factors, and business models on income and cash flow. Successful leaders must be able to understand how every significant operating or investment decision affects three areas: 1) how the business is presented to outsiders (the financial statements); 2) the firm's cash flows; and 3) the value of the business. Thus, we will explore the linkages between integrated financial statement and ESG analysis and the creation of multi-year forecasts that can be used to identify and manage the key value drivers of the firm. The course will also include examining how managers attempt to manipulate their financial results through earnings management and the use of non-GAAP metrics. This course is typically offered in the following semesters: Spring Prerequisites: ACC7200 or ACC7800
