You don't need to be an accounting or finance expert to understand financial metrics. In this webcast, you will learn simple approaches to determine how much value a firm is creating by looking at its financial statements.
When we’re done, you’ll have a great overview of how many financial metrics and ratios tie together in an economically understandable manner. We introduce a powerful model that can be used to evaluate and forecast the performance of any company.
