SU417 - Visual Finance: How to Read Financial Statements and Make Better Decisions With Pictures

Sun, May 21 | 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM | B407

Is it possible to understand accounting only by drawing pictures? Accounting is often perceived as being tedious, complicated, and too theoretical. Nonfinancial managers are less than enthusiastic about accounting. One possible cause is the way business schools teach it. In a recent study, only 46 percent of respondents had average or higher financial literacy and could understand financial statements. Stop avoiding financial topics during team meetings. Save your company from making costly mistakes and start maximizing all your valuable opportunities. Visual finance is a powerful, simple tool that you can easily apply to real life.
