MGMT 8650 - Financial Analysis, Planning, and Forecasting♦


(4 cr.) Competitive advantage and corporate sustainability depend profoundly on the financial decisions managers make. These decisions are based on information processed and evaluated using established theories. These theories, as well as the forecasting models used by contemporary financial planners and investors, are introduced to students. Students engage in a variety of group activities, discussions, and writing assignments on advanced research topics related to financial management planning, forecasting, and decision making. They explore econometric and time series analysis, cash flow, inventory, supply chains, sales forecasting, and both short- and long-range financial planning modeling. Through extensive reading and literature review, students identify potential research topics for their dissertation and explore the legal, ethical, and global dimensions of forecasting and financial planning and analysis. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8101M [may be taken concurrently].)
