Description

This online course deals with two critical areas in finance: financial analysis and financial auditing.  Learn how to interpret all the parts of a set of financial statements, properly audit it, and make decisions using a financial rationale.

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 will work through a set of financial statements highlighting the key points of relevance.

We will also learn about ratio analysis, which will help 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.

Many organizations are audited by independent public accountants. The purpose of an audit is to express an opinion on the fairness of presentation of financial information prepared by management. An audit enhances the value of financial information by making it more trustworthy and credible. In this multi-part course, we are going to learn how public accountants plan and execute an audit. This course provides complete coverage of most university level financial auditing courses. Enroll now to get this under your belt and accelerate your career!
