Reflections by Dr. Stephen Aro-Gordon

‘It was a very exciting time interfacing with a set of SDMIMD’s PGDM Year II students on Financial Statement Analysis (FSA) intensively for few days during and shortly after the highly successful 2nd International Conference on Inclusive Economic Growth and Sustainable Development which was held on the same campus in Mysore, India, 17-19 November 2016. I feel very delighted that the students responded very well throughout the very engaging sessions covering conceptual and theoretical discussions, lectures, applications, and group/team activities, presentations that characterized the pedagogy for this course with high usefulness for finance and non-finance majors. Students appreciated the fact that every business desires to know how it is doing financially for effective decision-making and strategizing robustly in today’s increasingly competitive markets, and in this respect, the preparation and intelligent analysis of firms’ financial statements and related competencies are highly needed. Indeed, I am highly impressed with the students’ probing questions on the whole essence of this course and, particularly, with the enthusiasm these particular students all displayed while they work in five teams doing practical assessment of the current financials of leading Indian companies across Pharmaceuticals, Oil, Automobile, ICT, and FMCG industries within the shortest possible time available for this interaction. I wish the students the very best of luck as they try to make good use of some of the learning points gained from the FSA interactions’.
