The reports become available at www.burkenroad.org and are distributed to more than 20,000 institutional and individual investors. Students are also responsible for introducing company management at the Burkenroad Reports Investment Conference each spring. The companies are located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. Finance and accounting students are encouraged to take this course in the spring semester of the junior year.pre-rec: ACCN 310.
