This course focuses on the accounting and quantitative tools of financial analysis that are used by busines professionals in corporate settings and investors. In the course, students look at finance in three ways: first, they discover how music companies record financial transactions in a booking system and calculate ratios of financial statements; second, they determine and understand financial calculations, both focused on the music industry in particular, as well as more general important overall business calculations; and third, they budget and fund music business ventures. Mastering these tools helps students analyze firms from a financial point of view and to measure ventures’ sustainability over the long-term. Students learn how to use financial analysis tools, both basic and sophisticated, to assess the potential of music enterprises, and create new businesses in the music industry.
