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. It's open to anyone who wants to take it. It's free for General Management alums (in-person, pre-virus version of GM), $15 for everyone else.
