About the Course

An understanding of financial information and how to interpret it is important, because management and other stakeholders use it to evaluate the performance of projects, both in their own organization and other organizations.

Course Description

This course introduces fundamental financial concepts, terms, and techniques that will help you analyze a company's financial performance.

You will examine the components of the three key financial statements: the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement. These three generally accepted accounting statements, used by most businesses for financial reporting, are prepared from the same accounting data, but each statement serves its own purpose.

You will also analyze the financial performance of a company through the application of financial ratios that provide insight into a company’s liquidity, debt, profitability, and efficiency.

The last tool you will be introduced to is comparative financial statements. Comparative financial statements enable you to compare financial performance across companies.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the general format, content, and use of the balance sheet, income statement, and the cash flow statement.
  • Analyze financial performance using ratios of liquidity, leverage, profitability, and efficiency.
  • Analyze comparative financial statements to assess more than one organization or scenario.
