BUS 3320

Welcome to your Library Course Guide!

This webpage is for students enrolled in BUS 3320: Financial Management with Professor Dana Benbow. The content and items linked from these pages will help you with the research required for your Individual Project Presentation where:

"each student will research and analyze their company during the course assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the overall financial management of the organization. The student will use information available through public documents and/or other supported research materials. This analysis should be representative of the due diligence a company would make prior to purchasing an asset and consider the company comprehensively."
