What is Burkenroad Reports?
"Professor Peter Ricchiuti & his students enjoy a tour on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange."
BURKENROAD REPORTS is a credit course, meeting for class on a weekly basis. More than 140 MBA and undergraduate business students are divided into teams of three to four students each. Each team is assigned coverage of one public company. These students meet with top management, visit company sites, develop financial models, and publish extensive investment research reports on the companies they follow. In addition to conversations with management, analysts often utilize various publicly available sources of information in creating these reports, including: financial documents, internet, trade associations, competitors, customers and suppliers.
Our students receive extensive training in the field of equity analysis. Professor Pamela Shaw works with each analyst team to develop financial forecasts and pro-forma financial statements. In addition to readings, class material and company site visits each student participates in a full day analyst workshop in the fall. Here alumni from the program return from Wall Street to lecture current students on "real life" applications and suggestions for securing positions in finance.
