If you’re looking to sharpen your accounting & finance knowledge, check out this course I created in partnership with Coursera called Financial Accounting Explained.

In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will access and evaluate financial statements of publicly traded companies and learn how users rely on this information to make lending, regulatory, and investing decisions.

Learning activities include:

  • Access and analyze the components of a public 10-K financial report
  • Create journal entries and produce financial statements (requires free Wave Financial account)
  • Search accounting standards for financial reporting compliance

You’ll even walk away with tips to showcase your knowledge in your next job interview!

Learners should have a basic understanding of the 3 most common financial statements: the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows.
