Finance and accounting are at the heart of every business. Even if your role isn't directly related to finance, your activities may still have financial implications. This course covers the basics of finance for non-finance professionals and covers key accounting and finance essentials and concepts: the basic accounting equation, accrual-based accounting, and basic accounting principles. It explores business finance, including how business transactions affect financial statements and the bottom line. You'll walk through the four-step accounting process and you will learn about each of the three financial statements, their reporting requirements, and how information is arranged within them. You will also examine a few examples of financial statements and explore how each financial statement relates to the others.
