This course will teach you the tools you’ll need to understand the fundamentals of financial accounting. Concise videos, the financial records of a small business, and “your turn” activities guide you through the three most commonly used financial statements: the Balance Sheet, the Income Statement, and the Statement of Cash Flows.

– Use journal entries to record transactions;
– Prepare and use t-accounts to summarize transactions recorded during an accounting period;
– Describe the three most commonly used financial statements and how they fit together;
– Prepare these financial statements based on transactions recorded during an accounting period; and

Our very diversified team of experts will start by teaching you how the price of stocks and bonds are computed and why they move while you will become increasingly aware of the notion of risk and why it matters when measuring an investment’s performance. The focus will then move to less popular markets such as gold, emerging markets, real estate, hedge funds and private markets. These will be analyzed with an emphasis on their particular risks and return opportunities as well as how they can help in building efficient portfolios. Finally, the policies of central banks and their impact on financial markets will be presented to you along with the link between the economy and the price of financial assets.
All along these different steps, experts from UBS, our corporate partner, will show you how the concepts you just acquired are effectively applied in a leading global bank. This focus on practicality means you will not only understand what is going on in global financial markets but also start to figure out how you can use them to achieve financial goals, be it a client’s or your own.
