About the Course

When it comes to numbers, there is always more than meets the eye. In operational finance, you will learn how to read the “story” that the balance sheet and income statement tells about the company’s operations. The insights you gain from this “financial story” will then become a tool for short-term decision-making at the top management level relating to current assets, current liabilities and the management of working capital. Finally, by the end of the course you will understand the financial consequences of managerial decisions on operations, marketing, etc....

It's a great course that helps break components of P&L and balance sheet.

Emphasis is on Receivables, Payables, Dupont analysis and how these variables affect the cash/bank position of the firm.

Very much enjoyed enrolling in this course for the following reasons as it provided: 1) A very practical and tangible application of the fundamentals of accounting learned in the 1st module of this specialization

2) A structured framework to diagnose financial problems only using common financial statements on companies

3) A quick glimpse on financial forecasting and business modeling

Highly recommended. Very applicable skills taught in a way that makes sure you know how to think rather than just knowing certain formulae.
