Accounting in an Hour

Whether you’re new to the subject or just looking for a good refresher, this course demystifies accounting and financial concepts by providing the basics in just 60 minutes. It is suggested that the student realistically consider their abilities and knowledge in the subject area and review the course description before enrolling. This course is self-directed and should not be considered as a replacement for a 15 week face-to-face instructor-led accounting course. It does however have great value in teaching the basics in a very meaningful way.

Whether you are working with a small, medium or large organization, chances are you’ll never achieve your career expectations if you’re unable to answer questions like these with confidence:

  • What does EBITDA mean?

  • Why is budgeting so important?

  • What is the difference between cash flow and profitability?

  • What is the difference between an Income Statement and a Balance Sheet?

If you’re unsure about even one of those questions, that confirms you’re not able to contribute as well as others at meetings where finance is discussed. You’ll never be counted on to give a meaningful financial opinion…and that relegates you to second-tier status in the minds of your colleagues and superiors.
