Prerequisites: ACC 240, ECN 112 and QBA 221. These prerequisites are mandatory and for good reason as this course utilizes the material you have learned in the prerequisite courses. Calculators and Spreadsheet Analysis: A financial calculator will be useful and serve to save time on calculations, but a calculator that can handle the basic four functions plus exponentiation/logarithms/roots and has reasonable memory capability will be adequate. The use of Excel in Spreadsheet analysis will also be taught and mastered in the Discounting Functions.
