Structured over four part-narrated modules with a written assignment to finish; the course includes actual case studies and quizzes that help learners understand accounting concepts and gain a journalists’ guide to the Income Statement; the Balance Sheet; the Cash flow statement and narrative reports by company auditors and directors.
