Excel assignments will also be incorporated, as well as writing business reports. Learning Objectives: By the end of this class, you should understand and be able to discuss: 1. How short and long-term financial decisions can impact the firm’s financial statements and future operations. 2. Financial forecasting techniques and pro forma financial statements. 3. Project cash flow analysis, the cost of capital, and capital budgeting techniques. 4. The importance of current asset management, including cash budgeting, to the operation of small and mid-sized firms. 5. Why leases are so important and commonly used by businesses today.
