This course introduces financial statements and concepts and is designed for students with no prior knowledge of the subject. We look at how statements (profit and loss, balance sheet, cash flow, income statement etc.) are used in the operations of for-profit and not-for profit enterprises, how enterprises of various sizes and purposes finance their growth, and how governance practices affect financial health. We will look at return on investment, and the role of stock and bond markets in the finances of enterprises, both for-profit and not-for-profit. Case studies will be used extensively.
