University of California, Irvine

Overview

The idea of 'accounting and finance' might make you want to run a mile, but improving your knowledge of how businesses manage money can be immensely helpful in your career. For non-financial professionals, the ability to converse with an accountant in their language and to ask pertinent questions is a skill that many don't have. Monetary ideas learned in business can often be applied to our personal lives, in areas such as investing.

David Standen is an entrepreneur, business professor, and business advisor for Goldman Sachs. In this Coursera program offered through the University of California, Irvine, Standen provides an accessible introduction to accounting and finance. The course covers core areas including the accounting equation, break-even analysis, and the time value of money.

"Outside of business we buy homes, we buy cars, we invest in our retirement … How do we do this? We need an understanding of finance and a basic understanding of accounting principles."
