Course Overview

What is Financial Statement Analysis? Financial Statements are an important means of providing information for organizations performance to various stakeholders. Financial Statement Analysis is the method of inspecting an organization’s performance in the framework of its industry and economic environment in order to arrive at a decision or recommendation.

Why you should attend the Advanced Financial Statement Analysis Course? A good corporate financial decision starts with numbers. Most of the numbers come from financial statements prepared by accountants. However, the financial statements do not disclose all of the necessary and relevant information for decision making. Therefore, it is necessary to analyse the data depicted in the financial statements.

This Zoe training course will empower you in taking the sound corporate financial decision based on the analysis of the information presented in the financial statements.
