#MBA #MIM #Japan #Nagoya

Professor Frendy conducted an online lecture on “Financial Analysis” which is a mandatory core module for GLP MBA students. The Financial Analysis course is designed to provide an understanding of how to analyze and interpret qualitative and quantitative information contained in a company's financial statements and other sources of information for business decision making.

Students are expected to apply financial analysis techniques to both financial and non-financial information and make decisions from the perspective of business managers, investors and other users of financial information.

On the 3rd day of this course, Professor Frendy talked about value and competition among different types of companies and discussed strategy analysis. He highlighted the key elements of the case related to Solar Energy and asked students' opinion and interrelated how the current pandemic situation is affecting companies and creating a global risk for many firms.

During the lunch break, Professor Frendy grabbed his laptop and invited students to leave their cameras on to enjoy and share some time with him outside of lecture.

Relationships grow from conversations about life experiences and lighter and more casual interactions outside of class. Even while observing social distancing guidelines, it is important to create opportunities for students to have these types of experiences.
