The Freeman Reports class is a multi-disciplinary course in which you will play the role of a sell side equity research analyst. You will develop several skill sets including financial modeling, financial analysis, valuation, critical thinking and business writing/communications, as all of these skills are required to be a successful sell side analyst.
You will work in small teams and begin the semester gaining basic knowledge of the industry and the real company you are researching. Each team then builds a financial model and completes a detailed valuation analysis of the company that ultimately drives the end product: a full research report including a buy, hold or sell recommendation. You will also have the opportunity to interact with the company’s management during a conference call so that detailed operational and financial question can be answered.
