"My goal is to provide our EMBA candidates with a framework of the critical underpinnings of financial reporting. Gaining such an understanding will allow them to evolve into full-fledge executives within their organization since they will be able to ask the appropriate questions regarding financial performance, participate fully in corporate decisions regarding resource allocations and benchmark their performance with those of competitors."
