Financial Statement Analysis

Programme Overview

Financial statements are used for many purposes. They are used by banks and other financial institutions to evaluate the financial structure, the credit rating and stability of an organization. Suppliers review them to evaluate credit worthiness. Investors analyze them to assess the organization’s cash flow generating potential. Employees may use them, as may potential buyers of a business. How do they do this?

Furthermore, many users do not fully understand the underlying concepts of how financial statements are prepared, or how different accounting policies can be used which can significantly affect the presentation of the organization’s financial position that may lead to false conclusions.

This course is designed to provide this vital understanding.
