Description

One of the most crucial skills for any manager to develop, financial or otherwise, is an ability to pick up and read a set of financial statements. Financial statements tell important stories about how a business has performed, its level of financial strength, and the availability of cash generated. Unfortunately, these stories are often not explicitly stated and require understanding and further analysis.

In this course, we work through a set of financial statements highlighting the key points of relevance. We also learn about ratio analysis, which helps us generate a deeper level of insight into the financial results by making comparisons to prior periods and to peers. This is a foundational course that will deepen your understanding of what the numbers mean. 

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone interested in finance or related fields.
