Course Description

Do you control your business, or does it control you? When you get your financial statements, do you know how to interpret the information or is it like trying to read a foreign language?

This class is designed to help business owners and managers: 1) understand and utilize their financial statements as a management tool 2) learn about cash flow management and how to identify “cash flow killers” 3) understand what parts of the financial statements are most important to the banks that might lend them money and 4) understand the basic types of financing available to small businesses.
