Course Description

In the six years that have passed since the Great Recession, economic and political uncertainty continue to plague business decision making.  Meanwhile, the advent of the Chartered Global Management Accountant certification and the Ethics Codification Project for 2015 require financial professionals to master ever more sophisticated analytical skills.    This course provides a foundation for those skills by exploring key economic and regulatory issues that are substantially impacting the financial and accounting industry.

Instructor Fran Ryan will cover a wide range of relevant topics including credit markets, the soundness of the credit collection process, uncertainty in decision making, management of debt and equity, how national economic issues, including Social Security, medical care, and infrastructure are affecting businesses.

Special focus is given to the knowledge required by the ‘new” industry accountant.
