“During the next 8 weeks we will be running a marathon. I will be leading this course on financial reporting and will do it the Chicago Booth way. We will start learning the basics of financial reporting—I´ll introduce the major financial statements that companies issue, and using these financial statements we will learn about strategies for companies. Later in the program we will perform financial statement analysis and learn about tax reporting. We will also learn about the consolidation of financial statements when companies gain control over each other.”
