Course Description

Understanding Accounting is Understanding Business.

Take a minute and think about the world we live in today. Whether it is social media, sport teams, non-profits, or local mom and pop shops- all of these are individuals, like me and you, creating a business and delivering it to the masses. Regardless of your background, you are immersed in a world of business. A foundation in accounting can help you navigate the complexities and develop a new perspective on the world we live in. Accounting is the language of business and in its simplest form, accounting is a platform that allows businesses to record transactions.

About the Course

This beginner course is a 15 chapter series of video lectures and textbook with an emphasis on financial accounting. It is imperative that you utilize both to get the most of the course.

It is designed to make accounting as simple and relevant as possible. Many other courses will have lessons on regulatory agencies or governmental accounting, however, this course purposely leaves those out. Frankly, unless you want to become a CPA, that information is too specialized and you simply will never use it. This course focuses only on concepts that can be applicable to your every day life.

The course starts with an overview of accounting and business concepts and then dives into technical theory. After going over technical concepts, it then takes a step back and shows how the technical theory relates to business operations. Lastly, it concludes with a chapter on utilizing technical theory to analyze companies.
