About the course
Every property’s finance function keeps detailed records of the daily transactions involved in the running the organization. Periodically, they create reports that allow management, stakeholders and regulating authorities to have insight into the financial health of the organization. As a manager, you need to understand both the metrics that are reported in income statement, balance sheets, and cash flow statements, and how they relate to each other. You also need to understand how comparing numbers across your company, the industry, and from year to year, can help you assess the overall financial performance of the firm.
The in-depth review of sample case studies in this course will provide you with the tools you need to examine your own property’s reports. As you make budgeting and investment decisions, your knowledge of how vital financial markers indicate relative health in the organization will help drive initiatives to meet your company’s financial goals.
- Understand the structure of the three principal financial statements: the income statement, the balance sheet, and the cash flow statement, and interpret the information found in these statements
- Identify online sources of financial information that can be used to conduct research on other publicly traded firms and industries
