Finance and Accounting for the Non-Financial Executive
Learn how to make better financial management decisions to increase the value of your company in the marketplace.
Balance sheets and income statements. Cash flow and financial management. Many executives rise to positions of great responsibility with less knowledge of these finance and accounting basics than they’d like to have. Finance and Accounting for the Non-Financial Executive will demystify the data, clarify key concepts, and teach you important frameworks and fundamentals.
This highly focused curriculum taught by Stanford GSB faculty will help you identify trends, make performance comparisons with competitors, and practice financial forecasting.
You’ll explore how much debt a company should accept, the appropriate analysis for better investment decisions, the measurement of the cost of capital, and the payment of cash dividends to investors.
