Introduction to Financial Analysis using Ratios


Interactive technical note comprising a quiz and an exercise focusing on analyzing the ratios once they have been calculated.

Using the hotel industry in general and the company NH in particular, students learn how to handle the basic ratios and perform a financial analysis. The exercises are self-corrected: the quiz is a web form and the final questionnaire is an Excel page which the students have to complete and then make a comparison with the competitor Sol Meliá.

Furthermore, the case includes a glossary with definitions and formulas, a pyramid that classifies the ratios used, and a series of specific ratios used on this particular industry.
