The first course MPE 6004 builds on the material presented in the accounting module. We move from the presentation of the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows to an analytical framework of these statements employing ratios. We examine the informational content of the ratios both cross-sectionally and in the times series. In addition, we develop the common sized ratio process. We then build on this knowledge by using the ratios to project pro forma statements and examine the consequences of these projections. The module continues with an examination of the cash budgeting process, and concludes with the development of the time value of money concepts. It is strongly recommended thatI am currently a business school student in the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Executive MBA program at Saint Joseph's University Erivan K.
