Cash is life. Growth eats cash. Cash only comes from debt, equity, or operations. 

Many of you — the best and brightest of your generation — won’t go to business school to learn the basics of finance. And you aren't going to get a chance to learn and practice while you are busy doing your day jobs. This is highly fix-able. 

Using classroom-tested tools (including cartoons, videos, and case studies) and an excellent book by Robert C. Higgins, Analysis for Financial Management, we will tackle: 

— Cash cycle 

— Financial statements

— Growth and cash 

— Sources of cash (debt, equity, operations)  

— Basic financial analysis 

This class is self-study. You can go at your own pace and schedule.
