BUAN 5270 - Analytics for Financial Decisions and Market Insights

3 credit hours
Because of data, managers can measure, and hence know, radically more about their business, and directly translate that knowledge into improved decision-making and performance. The knowledge created by the data analysis can also help firms to make better financial decisions as well as predicting the reaction by the financial markets or more specifically providers of capital. For example, should we restructure our business? You would want to know: How will the investors react to the announcement of the restructuring? Will it cause a sell-off in the market, therefore, create a capital crunch? Will this decision have implications for the future performance of the company? This course will provide a basic methodology to help you answer these kinds of questions with an emphasis of performance and financial markets. We will specifically cover firm valuation with an emphasis on accounting information, dividend policy choices, and compensation policies of real-time firms that are publicly traded. The strength of the course stems from the idea that we will be using real-life business decisions, with real-data and will use real modeling experiences that have been widely used in the industry.
