Understand all aspects of a company’s financial statements

In order to fully understand a company’s story, analyze its performance or value a company, you need to understand the financial statements. Ultimately, we need to understand how everything gets translated to cash.

During this course, we cover the most critical Accounting concepts that business professionals require in order to understand and analyze the financial statements of a company.

It's hard to learn Accounting by focusing on Debits and Credits and journal entries.  In this course, the learning happens from doing - actually building an Income Statement, Cashflow Statement and Balance Sheet. We have also included a walk through of Home Depot’s financial statements to help you master the concepts.
