This will be the primary method I use to communicate information critical to your success in the course. To contact me, send me an email. I will endeavor to respond within 24 hours.

Students have the opportunity to add their pronouns, as well as the pronunciation of their names, into Albert. Students can have this information displayed to faculty in Albert, Brightspace, and other NYU systems. Students can also opt out of having their pronouns viewed by their instructors.
Structure | Method | Modality
There are 14 session topics in this course. The course covers six interrelated units: (1) Financial Accounting for Managers, (2) Financial Statement Analysis, (3) Budgeting and Forecasting, (4) Risk and Return, (5) Financial Assets, and (6) Project Analysis & Capital Budgeting.
Individual assignments and the term paper will be based on course materials (e.g., readings, videos), lectures, and class discussions. Course sessions will be conducted synchronously on NYU Zoom, which you can access from the course site in NYU Brightspace.
You play an important role in creating and sustaining an intellectually rigorous and inclusive classroom culture. Respectful engagement, diverse thinking, and our lived experiences are central to this course, and enrich our learning community.
As graduate students, you are expected to conduct yourselves in a professional manner and engage and collaborate with your classmates. For online courses using the Zoom meeting room, here are our guiding principles:
- Dress as if you are in the Classroom.
- Keep your video on throughout the class.
- Keep your microphone muted unless asking a question or engaging in discussion.
- Check your video and audio when entering your class session.
- Think background, minimize distractions around you.
- Look into the camera instead of looking at the screen.
- Type quietly, mute if necessary.
SPS classrooms are diverse and include students who range in age, culture, learning styles, and levels of professional experience. To maintain an inclusive environment that ensures all students can equally participate with and learn from each other, as well as receive feedback and instruction from faculty during group discussions in the classroom, all course-based discussions and group projects should occur in a language that is shared among all participants.
You are integral to the learning experience in this class. Be prepared to actively contribute to class activities, group discussions, and work outside of class.
Assignments and Deadlines
Thorough reading and analysis of all reading assignments prior to each class session is required. The first class is NO exception. You must make whatever arrangements are necessary to ensure you have your textbook on time.
There will be individual assignments. Assignments must be submitted when due, via the Brightspace platform. The system will record the time the assignment is submitted and late submissions will be penalized or rejected.
Missed assignments will lower the student’s grade based on the percentage of the grade allocable to it.
Late assignments are permitted only with advance notice to, and permission from, the instructor. It is understood that this class requires a significant amount of time and effort from each student. Employment-related issues, such as heavy workloads or business travel, will not be cause for extensions. Extensions will only be granted due to extenuating circumstances (e.g., illness, unanticipated personal issues).
No work for this course may be all or part of assignments prepared for or used in previous or current courses.
No form of extra-credit work is permissible. Students are not permitted to redo/revise/resubmit any completed and graded assignments.
Course Technology Use
We will utilize multiple technologies to achieve the course goals. I expect you to use technology in ways that enhance the learning environment for all students. All class sessions require use of Zoom. All class sessions require use of technology (e.g., laptop, computer lab) for learning purposes. Students are expected to be able to use Excel to complete assignments.
