Unit 5: Financial Reporting and Financial Statement Analysis
In this unit, you will learn about financial reporting and examine the financial statements of a public company. Public companies are required to file their financial statements with the SEC on a quarterly and annual basis. The SEC has a standard format for presenting financial information that helps us read and interpret financial information. Understanding financial reports can help you in a variety of important ways: judging the financial health of the company you work for, looking into investment options, analyzing a potential vendor, customer, or partner, and even considering employment options. Knowing how to read and analyze financial statements is a must for anyone in business.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 6 hours.
