TOP REVIEWS FROM FINANCIAL ACUMEN FOR NON-FINANCIAL MANAGERS
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.
This Course was very helpful and providing an excellent knowledge about Financial Results with proper integration with non-financial performance. I really enjoyed the course !
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.
Appreciate the works that Professors Rick Lambert and Chris Ittner have done.
One suggestion is to add more samples to explain the concepts.
