Course Overview 

This course is designed to efficiently teach accounting to students and professionals embarking on careers in finance. The course is written in a clear, easy-to-follow style that makes accounting accessible, and is filled with exercises that test and reinforce covered concepts. We begin with an analysis of accounting rules and the structure and composition of key financial filings like 10Ks and 10Qs. We introduce the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement, and thoroughly analyze their important inter-relationships, line-by-line, all the while using real life examples to reinforce important concepts. The course concludes with a discussion of ratio analysis.
