Testimonial


"Going through the Finance Statement Analysis e-learning module was a good refresher for me. I was especially interested in the ratio analysis section and liked that a case-study was used for me to practice the various ratios mentioned. The explanations and infographics used were clear and simple, which made it easy to remember the different ratios. Accountants can definitely take this e-learning module to remind themselves about the different techniques to analyse financial statements in order to give stakeholders more clarity about the financial health of the company. In addition to accountants, this module would be good for entrepreneurs and business owners who want to learn how to do a quick analysis of their company’s financial statements to detect problems early."
