About the Course

This course brings Financial Management to life through a fundamental deconstruction of financial statements. An intuitive dashboard will give you the ability to understand, manage and communicate financial decisions, putting you a step ahead of your peers. During the course, you will be able to simulate the impact of financial strategy and decision making on the development and implementation of shareholder value creation strategies. The discipline of accounting can be described in terms of understanding the financial consequences of various transactions and events which impact on the organization and how these are reported in the context of the income statement, the statement of cash flows and the statement of financial position.

Learning Objectives

  • Financial statement analysis: the process of reviewing and analyzing a company’s financial statements to make better economic decisions
  • Understand and interpret the financial position of the business entity together with its overall profitability and cash flow performance
  • Ratio analysis: a valuable toolbox to rationally evaluate various aspects of a company’s operating and financial performance such as its efficiency, liquidity, profitability, and solvency
