#1 Best Selling Accounting Course on Udemy (Learn Finance and Accounting the Easy Way)!     ** ACCORDING TO BUSINESS INSIDER: "Haroun is one of the highest rated professors on Udemy, so you can expect to be in good hands through the course of your education." **  He is the author of the best selling business course on Udemy this year called 'An Entire MBA in 1 Course'

This course will help you understand accounting, finance, financial modeling and valuation from scratch (no prior accounting, finance, modeling or valuation experience is required).

By the end of this course, you will also know how to value companies using several different valuation methodologies that I have used during my Wall Street career so you can come up with target prices for the companies that you are analyzing.

By the end of this course, you will also know how to analyze financial statements using many different financial ratios/formulas that I have used in my hedge fund, Goldman Sachs and venture capital career.

The Learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  • Understand how to read and analyze financial statements like a Balance Sheet, an Income Statement, and a Cash Flow Statement.

  • Discover the best modelling practices to be able to create your own financial statements.

  • Recognize the role macroeconomics plays in modelling.

  • Identify the different resources to research financial statements of public companies.

  • Determine how to create a forecasting model from the financial statements.

  • List the most commonly used valuation methods.

  • Derive a target price of a stock using three or more valuation methods.

  • Define and explain the financial metrics used to determine the health of a company.

Lastly, I am teaching this course in a much more visual and entertaining way; I hope you enjoy the course as I always use an 'edutainment' and visualization teaching approach to make complex topics simple/easy to understand. 

Please note that if you already signed up for my course called "Hedge and Mutual Fund Careers: The Complete Guide," some of the accounting and finance topics in this course were already covered in the Hedge and Mutual Fund Careers: The Complete Guide course.

If we are a business owner or accounting professional who would like to get a better understanding of what our accounting software is doing

Or

An accounting student or student in general that would like to get a better understanding of what our accounting textbook is doing

This course is a course for us.

Business owners, accounting professionals, and accounting students often have the same problem with accounting. . .

that we are focused on one small component of the accounting process and not able to make all the necessary connections to other components of the accounting process to fully benefit from an understanding of how the business runs.

Business owners focus on cash flow and revenue, accounting professionals focus on their component of the accounting department and enter data into the accounting software, and accounting students focus on the topic they are currently working on.

Accounting professional often focus on one component of the accounting cycle like accounts receivable, accounts payable, or payroll often not having much time to consider the relationship with other areas of the accounting cycle.

Accounting software helps simplify the data entry process, but the simplification also restricts us from seeing how the data is being processed into the end product, into financial statements and reports.

Students are focused on one component of the accounting cycle at a time following an accounting textbook that is putting the pieces of the accounting puzzle together one step at a time.

As students zoom their focus into the current topic, they often lose sight of it fits into the larger objective and this loss of sight causes students to question the relevance of what they are losing. Student’s questioning the relevance of what they are learning causes students to lose interest. A loss of student interest causes students grades to fall.

Part of the reason accounting textbooks have a difficult time incorporating the current topic into the big picture is that a textbook is restricted by what can fit on a page and the problems a textbook provides are restricted by what a student can accomplish with paper and pencil.

The use of instructional video providing a step by step process along with Excel that allows students to sum up large columns of numbers in a short time provides the tools to create a comprehensive problem that will demonstrate current topics in the context of the entire accounting process.

Why Take This Course?

We will start to learn the accounting cycle in a comprehensive way and learn the fundamental of Excel.

Learning the accounting process without Excel or Excel without accounting is a waste of time and not an efficient way to learn either topic.

Like assets being equivalent to liabilities and equity, accounting is equivalent to Excel in many ways and therefore learning Excel will accelerate our learning of accounting and make what we learn more applicable.

Accounting is also the perfect tool to learn Excel. This course will not provide a broad overview of everything Excel can do because that is not a way to learn. Courses attempting to demonstrate all the functions Excel fail to create value for learners because learners will not retain what they learn without a foundation of core concepts and a reason for learning each new function.

This course will cover the fundamentals of Excel, those components used 99% of the time, and the components needed as a foundation for learning more about Excel.

The core components of Excel we will learn include adding, subtracting, and summing up columns of numbers.

We will learn the core concept of Excel through demonstration, repetition, and application to practical problems.

What Will Be Included in This Course?

In addition to instruction video we include an Excel worksheet with just about every presentation allowing us to both see the completed answer and work through the problems step by step along with the video.

Each Excel workbook includes at least two tabs. One tab will have the answer so that we can see how the completed worksheet is constructed and the second tab will provide us the opportunity to enter the data along with the instructional video.

Who Will We Be Learning From?

We will be learning from somebody who has practical accounting experience as a practicing CPA, teaching experience, curriculum design experience.

Credentials include:

We are learning from someone who has both instruction and curriculum development experience needed to construct comprehensive courses of a technical nature in a way that meets students’ needs and expectations.

 What Will We Learn?

We will learn how to complete the components of the accounting cycle and the fundamental of Excel including addition, subtraction, and the sum function.

Below is a short list of what is included in the accounting cycle and what we will cover in the course:

  • Journalizing journal entries
  • Posting to the general ledger
  • Create a trial balance
  • Financial statement generation

How Will We Be Taught?

We will learn through viewing and then doing.

We will demonstrate each component of the problem in small digestible parts using both a completed Excel worksheet and instructional video.

We will provide an Excel worksheet that can be filled in along with the instructional video or after watching the instructional video.

Please join us in learning Accounting, Excel, debits, and credits.

It will be Great

Accounting can be a very dry and daunting subject for many. To be honest, some lecturers that teach this subject almost sound like they are speaking a different language Accounting-lish ! Even the text books can be as dry. I vividly remember having to study this subject when I was in University and it was a struggle. Luckily for me after working for a couple of years in a Big 4 and seeing the application of Accounting. It just clicked for me.

So I made it a mission of mine to give back and teach this subject to the new generation of accountants so I have created this course to help you in your accounting journey. So in this course we shall cover the following :

- Why Even Study Accounting

I think this section is extremely important to cover as it gives you a context on why you should even study this subject. Only upon knowing the why, this will enable us to gain some context on why we study this subject in the 1st place.

- The Basic Lingo - What is an Asset, Liability & Shareholder Equity

To understand a book, we need to know the words. And like accounting, to understand the statements we need to have a grasp on the accounting lingo.

- The Accounting Equation - Asset = Liability + Equity    
This is the very base of accounting knowledge.

Description

If you are a beginner and don’t know much about Financial Derivatives. Then you have come to the right place as I have covered all the concepts from scratch.

Why you should take this course? What value it will add?

Let me first discuss some problems and issues that students encounter when they study Financial derivatives.

  • First, Financial derivatives is one of the complexed courses in Finance, as the students need to have a strong knowledge about fundamentals of Finance to understand the pricing and valuation of financial derivatives instruments.

  • Second, one concept leads to another, so students find it difficult to understand linkages between various interlinked concepts.

  • Third, many of the concepts covered in Financial derivatives are difficult to relate to real life examples as compared to the other subjects in Finance such as Corporate Finance or Financial Reporting and Analysis.

I have tried to address the above mentioned issues

  • By adding complementary lectures to explain fundamentals of finance which are relevant to the topics covered in the Financial derivatives

  • I have divided the concepts into various parts and explained each part separately and also how all components are related to one another

  • I have included examples and focused on relating a concept to a situation. This will help students to visualize, which in turn help them to retain the concepts

  • Used plain language

This course is divided into three sections

  • Introduction

  • Forward & Futures

  • CDS, Options and SWAPs

I will advise you to watch the videos in the manner that they are listed as videos in the later sections contain examples explained in the earlier videos.

Who this course is for

  • This course is for CFA Level 1 Candidates

  • This course is for students who are interested in studying Financial derivatives at University level programs

Double Your Job Interviews, Leverage Recruiters, Unlock LinkedIn

Why

This Class is for You

I have been working in the recruiting industry as an Executive Search Consultant and Career Coach since 2004, but something happened in 2014 that completely changed how I coached my accounting and finance clients literally overnight.

I had a client Lisa who was a CPA Controller for a $4M per annum for-profit organization that licensed music for Karaoke machines. It was an unusual one-of-a-kind business in Columbus Ohio. (Hardly the mecca for music and entertainment.) Prior to that she had great roles in Treasury and FP&A with a particular joy for forecasting.

Despite 15 years of incredible skills across five industries and multiple Accounting Roles, she could barely get a call for an interview after a few months of job hunting.

When I talked to Lisa on the phone I was so surprised.  Typically an accounting and finance professional has no problem getting a job. She shared with me that she never had  a problem before and she feared ageism. Lisa was 43 years old. That is not when age discrimination hits so I knew that was not the issue.

I asked for her resume and review her LinkedIn profile and saw the problem immediately. Her resume and job campaign issues had to do with rank, industry, scope, and professionalism – not ageism. This was easily fixed.

My client was absolutely desperate for a job and I knew I had to act quickly. I got her logins for LinkedIn as well as other online job boards and within two hours, I re-aligned everything, got a new professional profile picture, submitted her resume to local recruiters, changed all of her online profiles to match her job search goals. 

Within 72 hours she had five phone screen requests and within 60 days she had a new job as a Forecasting Analyst for a large automotive company. But that is not the best part…

She had not applied for a single job! Not one!

All the calls she got were from her online profiles. These profiles continue to regular hits even today allowing her to determine market and salary demand for her skills and plan her career.

This method is now the core of my career coaching practice.

So what is the secret? It is just one phrase: Keyword-stacking.

Once you learn how to keyword-stack your profiles in the way that recruiters search, you will get calls too.

 

What You Will Be Able to Do After Reading This Book

  • Leverage a database of local and national recruiters
  • Have recruiters come straight to you for great jobs
  • Run a discrete search if required
  • Get calls for jobs without applying
  • Double your interviews with active and passive search techniques
  • Tap unadvertised jobs in the hidden job market

With the class you get:

  • Video instruction
  • A resume template that beats the resume black hole
  • My copyrighted “Core-3©” career assessment
  • Fill-in-the-blank interview preparation scripts
  • Salary negotiation scripts
  • And so much more! 

EXTRA BONUS: The class includes a database of 300+ recruiters specializing in accounting and finance. The database allows the possibility for discrete job searches or you can use it in addition to active and passive job search techniques that double your job interviews.

One of the reasons I did a break out book based on my best-selling Stacked program is due to the unique and unprecedented opportunity accounting and finance professionals have to leverage the recruiting machine that exists in this category.

There are hungry recruiters waiting to work with you today!

These methods have facilitated thousands of career changes, and now you can use them too!

I look forward to helping you achieve your career goals.

Learn the basics to intermediate of financial accounting in less than an hour!

The worldview of accounting and accountants may certainly involve some unhelpful characters poring over formidable figures stacked up in indecipherable columns.

However, a short and sweet description of accounting does exist:

Accounting is the language of business efficiently communicated by well-organised and honest professionals called accountants.

A more academic definition of accounting is given by the American Accounting Association:

The process of identifying, measuring and communicating economic information to permit informed judgments and decisions by users of the information.

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants defines accounting as:

The art of recording, classifying, summarizing in a significant manner and in terms of money, transactions and events which are, in part at least of financial character, and interpreting the results thereof.

Accounting not only records financial transactions and conveys the financial position of a business enterprise; it also analyses and reports the information in documents called “financial statements.”

Recording every financial transaction is important to a business organisation and its creditors and investors. Accounting uses a formalized and regulated system that follows standardized principles and procedures.

The job of accounting is done by professionals who have educational degrees acquired after years of study. While a small business may have an accountant or a bookkeeper to record money transactions, a large corporation has an accounts department, which supplies information to:

  • Managers who guide the company.

  • Investors who want to know how the business is doing.

  • Analysts and brokerage firms dealing with the company’s stock.

  • The government, which decides how much tax should be collected from the company.

Principle of Accounting can also refer to the basic or fundamental principles of accounting: cost principle, matching principle, full disclosure principle, revenue recognition principle, going concern assumption, economic entity assumption, and so on.

Accounting can be an intimidating course. Accounting students look forward with anticipation but also hesitance. Non accounting majors that are forced to take accounting look at accounting with dread. This course is designed to make accounting a more friendly course by getting you ready. A big fear of the unknown will now be known.

  • Fear: Unknown

  • Fear: Loss of control

  • Fear: Humiliation

  • Fear: Left behind or lost

  • Fear: Failure

Who will benefit from this course?

Are you about to take financial accounting? Would you like to better understand financial accounting? Are you a student, businessperson or manager that does not have a background in accounting but may need to deal with the accounting department? Then this course would benefit you!

What you will learn

We will learn what accounting really is and what it is not. We will see the truth behind the ‘math’ misunderstanding of accounting. You will get a primer in accounting by understanding what accounting reports. You will get an introduction into basic accounting equation. You will be introduced to debits and credits. You will even learn to use journal entries. I will show you some examples using Excel.

Lesson Descriptions

· Introduction to the course: You will get an overview of this course and what to expect. You will see how this course will help pre-accounting students gain an understanding of accounting. Knowing what accounting is about will take away that fear. Managers that deal with accounting may be at a disadvantage if they do not know what the accounting department does.

· Common student fears introduced: The biggest fears students have in accounting are discussed in this lesson. One fear is that of math. Math can be intimidating or even scary. Math students often fear math because of the use of formulas. Students in math see the questions as right or wrong with no interpretation. Students also fear accounting for its use of rules. Accounting is seen as a profession of rules.  Students believe not knowing the rules can lead to failure. Students often fear the use of debits and credits in problems.  After this course you will understand that none of the common misconceptions about accounting, math, debits and credits, or rules is true. 

· Perception vs reality: What is an accountant’s life like? We perceive accounting and accountants a certain way. In this lesson we’ll discuss that perception. We’ll then discuss the reality of the profession. What do accountants really do? What is their career like?

· Basic accounting terms: Key terms include transaction and account. These terms are used throughout business. The reason for confusion is that there are multiple definitions for these terms in business depending on your role.

· Accounting Reports: What are the reports provided by accountants? You’ll learn the major two accounting reports that are taught in school. You’ll see what kind of information is provided in these reports.

· Who?: In this lesson you will get to see who uses the accounting reports. You’ll find out why accounting reports are so useful and why there is such a need for accountants.

· Math: You will get the truth about math as it is used in financial accounting. There are numbers in accounting but what accountants really do is communicate. The numbers are part of that transfer of information to the user. The ‘math’ accountants use is really just adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. The accounting problems take no special math skills, but those accounting problems may be a challenge. So how should you approach accounting problems when you take the course?

· Accounting Equation: All of financial accounting can be boiled down to one formula: Assets = Liabilities + stockholders’ equity. You will understand this formula as a fundamental or foundation of information you will need for the course.

· Debits and Credits Oh My!: You will know, by the end of the lesson, what a debit and credit is and what they are not. You will understand how these are merely tools for increasing or decreasing accounts.

· Journal Entry: Learn how to do a journal entry. Get some examples from real world transactions. You will follow the journal entries as they are completed using Excel.

Course Prerequisites:

No prerequisite: You will learn the very basics of financial accounting!
