About the Course

This course presents an introduction to the basics of financial accounting and finance for IT professionals. The first part of the course will focus on understanding the most important financial statements, namely, the balance sheet, the income statement, and the statement of cash flows. We will then focus on how we can understand the financial health and performance of the company by examining a number of important financial ratios that are derived from the financial statements of the company. The second part of the course will focus on the basics of finance. This includes the concept of time value of money, discounting cash flows, and capital budgeting. The course will also introduce the idea of real options, how they affect a project’s NPV, and their impact of the decision to accept/reject a project. Lectures on concepts will be supplemented with numerical examples....

Very good content and neat and clear explaining . However this course needs a lot of home work to be done for non Finance professionals and is challenging.

As an engineering student with very little knowledge of Finance and Accounting, I found this course covered a vast amount of topics and was paced well too. The discussion prompts are a nice touch as are the excel sheets which give a rather realistic picture.

However, there is a very clear lack of examples. I ended up looking up the meanings of quite a few terms to understand them better (maybe finance students already know them). Perhaps providing accompanying notes or reading material with solved questions would help.
