What can you expect?

Through this seminar, you will gain a deep insight into financial statement analysis. Accounting courses sometimes propose analysis that violates the principles of finance, while finance courses are sometimes dismissive of accounting (S. Penman, 2013, p. VIII). This program gives you an integrated perspective on how to use financial and non-financial information for valuation purposes. You will understand what drives value and you will acquire all the necessary skills to position your company for growth and profitability.
