Finance and Accounting for the Non-Financial Manager


http://executiveeducation.wharton.upenn.edu/open-enrollment/finance-programs/finance-accounting.cfm
The program teaches the core concepts of finance and accounting in a straightforward and easy-to-understand manner, including terminology and principles, financial statements, distinction between income and cash flow, and valuation. You will learn how financial data is used to make business decisions and to evaluate a firm's performance.

A primary objective of this course is to make its content applicable to your own business or managerial circumstances.
