The Basics of Accounting

April 29

Build a good foundation of the accounting process, financial statements, and other finance basics.

Understanding the accounting process and being able to read financial statements are crucial to effectively managing a company. Without a good grasp of a business’s financial health, business leaders are ill-equipped to anticipate and assess the challenges opportunities they face. By learning how to correctly comprehend financial information, business leaders will not only be able to effectively plan for the future but also understand the effects of past events. This material will help give individuals a good foundation of the accounting process, financial statements, and other finance basics that will prepare them to make better decisions and effectively run their business.
