Description

We will learn how to read financial statements and how to use them for decision making.

A primary tool we will use is ratio analysis. Ratio analysis is a very useful skill in a wide area of topics, and financial analysis is a great place to learn the skill.

Ratios are necessary when measuring performance, including most any job performance. For example, we must apply ratio analysis when measuring the job performance of sports athletes. Similar ratio analysis will apply to most any job performance, and also apply to the performance of corporations.

Once we analyze the past performance of a corporation, we can use this knowledge to predict future performance, helping us make decisions about the company, whether those decisions be investment-related, creditor related, or managerial.

This course will include many example problems using both a presentation format and a spreadsheet format.

Corporate finance is a wonderful tool to learn, improve, and practice Excel or Google Sheets spreadsheet skills. Every spreadsheet practice problem will include a downloadable Excel file, that can be opened with Google Sheets, containing at least two tabs, one with the answer, the other with a preformatted worksheet to be filled in along with a step by step instructional video.

It is a clear overview of the corporate finance subject. The instructor uses professional language that is easy to understand.

repeating to much the same, instead bringing examples to understand more, could shorting the time of reapeating same and try more examples and move on.

I will provide my honest assessment. The slides were a bit underwhelming in terms of understanding the concepts between economics, finance, and accounting. From a learner's perspective, they don't connect to what you are explaining. You are also very monotone while discussing the content. YOU REALLY SEEM TO KNOW YOUR STUFF. Just the overall presentation of the lecture was a bit boring and difficult to remember. I'm still continuing through it though

If he didn't repeat every sentence that much, the course could have been significantly shorter, but impossible to understand and internalize also. He teaches in a way that whenever a question comes up, the next minute you have the answer. And repeating makes it easy to understand the big picture after every new information. Tried different ways to learn this stuff. Best course I have ever encountered for starters. Much appreciated.

Learning a lot of practical information very quickly that I can immediately implement. For example, reading the financial articles in a newspaper make more sense!
