CHICAGO BOOTH APPROACH TO FINANCE

The business world is marked by volatility and unpredictability. Yet one thing remains constant—the language of business. And this competitive business world requires leaders to have a solid understanding of these core financial accounting principles to make effective decisions in their organization.

The Chicago Booth Approach to Finance offers you a unique opportunity to discover accounting through the Chicago Booth approach, which views accounting as the language of business rather than a mere set of standards.

Led by renowned Chicago Booth Professor, Haresh Sapra, over an eight-week period you’ll be introduced to key financial statements— learning how to understand them, how to prepare them and become familiar with their main components. And, after acquiring an understanding of how to interpret a company’s financial statements and financial position, you’ll be able to make impactful decisions on how to combat competition, make strategic growth decisions, and create shareholder value.
