COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course is for those persons who have not had much experience in accounting and are looking to enhance their understanding of it, or to enhance a business career. It is for anyone who may have felt lost in prior accounting courses and wants real life examples and a down to earth explanation, rather than something read word for word out of a textbook. Classes will be interactive and will require the active involvement of the participants in finance related activities. Explore the nature and purpose of cost and management accounting; how to record and classify costs; and how to use spreadsheets. Course discussions established for classes will be moderated.

The course is taught by a multi-disciplinary team of instructors and professors with relevant practical and theoretical financial experience from ACCA, the University of Pennsylvania, University of California.

At the end of this course, further certification in finance can be earned with the ACCA Certificate in Financial and Management Accounting by registering directly with ACCA as a student, passing the ACCA’s exams in Management Information (MA1) and Recording Financial Transactions (FA1) and completing a free online module called "Foundations in Professionalism." A free exam preparation course for FA1, called Introduction to Bookkeeping, is also available through ACCA-X.
