I take this opportunity to thank our In-Charge Director Prof. Avani Desai, Professor in-charge, Mrs. Seema. Pandit for their encouragement and the office staff for providing us all the facilities for making the financial report exercise more learning oriented.
I have made a financial report of Colgate Palmolive Ltd. as part of our 2nd year B.B.A. study in which I have interpreted about finance situation of the company and many other topics which gave us information about the company like history, current management, product, trend analysis, analysis of Directors and Auditors report, Ratio analysis, Comparative statement, Common sized statement, Analysis of significant accounting policies, Calculation of cash flow etc.
These things are of great need to a B.B.A. student as it provides practical knowledge along with theoretical knowledge which is very important to gain. INDEX
