The Language and Tools of Financial Analysis is a MOOC taught by Paul Kofman and Sean Pinder; renowned professors in the Faculty of Business and Economics. The four week course allows participants to learn the foundations of accounting principles and financial analysis, and develop a deeper understanding of how these tools are used to facilitate comparisons between companies.

Created in partnership with Bank of New York Mellon, this course is the first in a series of four courses followed by a capstone, that make up a specialisation in financial analysis. If you’d like to learn more about the course, and establish if this is the right course for you, a short course overview video is available.
