Course Name: Finance I
Instructor: Jennifer Elder

Managers in organizations need to be able to locate, read, and analyze a variety of financial and non-financial information in order to make informed decisions and evaluate the success of their operations. This course is intended to develop the analytical and critical thinking skills necessary to evaluate financial reports. The course will also expand beyond traditional financial concepts and explore the concept of a “sustainable business”. We will explore alternative measurement systems and reporting formats that can provide a broader context for evaluating not only economic performance, but social and environmental impacts as well.
