Class Description:
Understanding how public and nonprofit organizations manage financial resources is vitally important to understanding their health and where they place their priorities. Being able to budget will give you an advantage in securing resources. Being able to read a financial statement of a nonprofit will assist you in understanding the net worth of a nonprofit. Being able to analyze the financial statements of a government will suggest to you the economic vitality of the community. The financial environments for public and nonprofit organizations are changing. Governments are pressured to "do more with less" and nonprofit organizations are expected to "do better at doing good". In order to meet these challenges, it is important that managers and employees of public and nonprofit organizations possess the fundamentals of budgeting and financial analysis. This is an introductory course to budgeting and financial analysis in the context of public and nonprofit organizations. The primary learning objective of this course is how to obtain accurate financial information to make sound management decisions through the analyses of financial documents such as budgets and financial statements. The processes of producing such documents will be introduced but are not the focus of this course. Conceptual frameworks and analytical techniques will be emphasized and applied to analyze real-world financial problems.
