Financial Reporting

2 week intensive course

This course introduces the generally accepted accounting principles that govern an entity's financial reporting system and the three financial statements: income statement, balance sheet, and the statement of cash flows that are the principal end products of the system.

Students will learn how financial information is used to evaluate the financial performance and health of an organization, both by managers within the organization but mostly by shareholders, lenders, and other external parties.

No prior knowledge of accounting is assumed. But by the end of the course you should know enough of the fundamental concepts, terminology, and techniques of financial accounting to analyze corporate annual reports.
