Fundamentals of Finance
This course focuses on enabling you to understand and interpret your financial story for both internal and external audiences. At the end of the day, not only will you know how to find the information you need, but you’ll be able to use that information judiciously in financial decision-making. Through a deeper understanding of the role of financial reports and the story they tell, your organization will be empowered to make strategic decisions and motivate financial investment.
You will leave this class knowing how to read and interpret financial statements to inform strategic decision-making, to appropriately separate financial duties and responsibilities to protect against fraud and misuse, and to allocate expenses more accurately in order to truly reflect your programmatic narrative.
This class is highly recommended for organizations that lack a full-time finance professional, but are committed to best practices and transparency.
