In this course, participants will learn the foundations of accounting principles and financial analysis, develop an understanding of the links between these, and the measurement of value creation at the firm level.
The Language and Tools of Financial Analysis Course is offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Melbourne.
This is the first course in a four-course Specialization on the Essentials of Corporate Financial Analysis and Decision-Making, created in partnership between the University of Melbourne and Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon).
Who is this class for:
Learners who want an introduction to the key financial statements companies use to summarize their financial performance and position, and who wish to learn about the financial tools that facilitate comparison between companies. This course also describes some of the limitations in relying on published financial statements to assess the performance of a company, and introduces the critical concept of 'discounted cash flow' analysis as a key tool in financial decision-making.
