Short Courses_Finance_article
Date: August 1 - 3, 2016
Location: NYU Stern, New York, NY 10012


This program prepares executives with a general understanding of accounting and financial principles as they relate to organizations' operations and decision-making processes. It also prepares financial analysts and investors with a general understanding of the valuation content and limitations of financial statement information. Starting with a review of financial data in a company's annual report and accounting statements, participants will gain a well-rounded understanding of how basic accounting information may be used in communicating with financial managers, as well as to assess a firm's future prospects and value. The remaining time will be spent covering finance principles relevant to leaders whose primary job responsibilities are outside of the finance function with implications for project decisions, corporate structure and performance measurement.
 
This program is for general and functional business managers who interact regularly with the firm’s finance area; managers who make business decisions that affect the firm’s financial results, or are impacted by financial models; and financial analysts and investors who would like to understand how to interpret the data in financial statements to assess a firm's future prospects and value.
