ACC 550 Creating and Measuring Shareholder Value (3 credits)

This course employs a case-based approach for assessing the value of the firm and demonstrating how shareholder value is increased. Coverage includes a description of value creation fundamentals and a discussion of contemporary value metrics such as cost-profit-volume analysis, economic value added, and activity-based measurement of management effectiveness. Using financial databases, students work in teams to apply the analytic tools of managerial decision making and prepare comprehensive reports (e.g., the Balanced Scorecard) that measure managerial performance in enhancing firm value.

Prerequisites: ACC 500 and FIN 503.
