2008 1st Quarter: Baruch Business Report-CFOs on 2008- Episode 9
From Baruch DML
The Baruch Business Report offers a conversation between John Elliott, the Dean of Baruch’s Zicklin School of Business, and Terrence Martell, Saxe Professor of Finance and International Business in Baruch’s Zicklin School of Business. The discussion starts with the results of the first quarter 2008 “Chief Financial Officers Outlook Survey,” which is conducted quarterly by Financial Executives International and Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business, and continues into a larger economic analysis including CFOs concerns that the economic downturn in the U.S. is impacting their company’s budgets, spending and hiring, while more than one third of CFOs (34%) reported that the weakness of the U.S. dollar has led to increased international sales. The survey results are available on Baruch College’s website at: http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/cfosurvey/.
