TOP REVIEWS FROM FINANCIAL ACUMEN FOR NON-FINANCIAL MANAGERS
Weeks 1-3 are a decent overview of accounting and regularly used financial measures for performance. Week 4 is entirely different; it is a great introduction to and overview of predictive analytics.
I'm Donatus and I want to stress that this course is worth taking.I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to whoever wishes to expand his or her knowledge in the financial management circle.
The course is very helpful and informative for anyone who isn't coming from a financial background. Learnt so much from this. Thanks for the effort!!
Some topics get confusing as is natural with complex financial data sets and statements, but just re-watch the videos and download the PDFs for review!
