Excellent course...there are detailed explanations about some important aspects in accounting and finance field, such as: financial vs. managerial accounting, financial statements and their components (Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Cash-Flow Statement and their ratios), methods of costs allocation (ABC), financial investments (bonds, shares), budgets.
