Course description

Finance Fundamentals 2 - Introduction to Analysis of Accounts

Often those working closely with finance professionals feel exposed and not confident in discussing matters of accounting. Building on the skills developed in Finance Fundamentals 1, this course introduces analysis and interpretation of a set of accounts. This will include using a number of basic ratios to analyse and interpret sets of accounts. It will also look at the potential pitfalls in using incomparable information and the implications of accounts being prepared using different accounting policies.

The course is highly practical with several case studies and exercises to bring the theory to life.
