TOP REVIEWS FROM FINANCE FOR NON-FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS
I've enjoyed this course. Prof. Standen gives a very basic but clear overview of the most common financial topics, wished I had this course a couple of years ago it would have made my life way easier.
An excellent well-rounded course and perfect for anyone who would like to gain some insight into financial practices. I would highly recommend this course, "Finance for Non-Financial Professionals."
Excellent Course Covering the core concepts of Financial Accounting for Non-Financial Professional . David Standen presentation of the course material is very impressive and clear to understand.
Probably the single best course I have seen on finance and, by extension, accounting for those of us going in more or less clueless. It's actually an entertaining course and easy to keep watching.
