Finance and Accounting


To succeed as a businessperson in today's fast-paced, global marketplace, one of the essential business skills you need to master—whether you're a top-level manager, an investor, or an entrepreneur—is a firm grasp of how finance and accounting work.


Accounting is the language in which organizations communicate their performance. Finance translates this language into smart, savvy business decisions. And no matter how honed your corporate strategy, how intricate your operations, or how ethical your organizational behavior, if you don't know about the business side of money, you cannot dream of building or growing a business. Knowing the fundamentals of finance and accounting—key terms, concepts, methodologies, real-world examples, and applications—is knowledge that can make all the difference in making wise decisions, whether you're looking to raise capital for a bold new venture, value once-in-a-lifetime stocks, or build a better investment portfolio.


These 12 informative lectures make a seemingly intimidating topic accessible to learners from all backgrounds, and will help you hone the critical skills you need to finally master the fundamentals of business. With the guidance of award-winning Professor Eric Sussman, a senior lecturer in accounting at the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as a licensed CPA and business consultant, you'll soon discover the confidence to understand, interpret, and learn from the vital financial data in your professional and personal life.
