Finance and Accounting Short Learning Program

AMA Post Graduate understands the need for professionals to refresh their knowledge on certain topics or the need to learn skills outside their current skillset which is why we offer a wide range of short programs to address this need. Our short program online for finance & accounting is perfect for those with both a current background in finance or those looking to learn more about it. Best of all, our online learning programs are fully flexible, meaning busy accountants can enroll and take it up whenever it is most convenient for you, at their own pace.

Brothers and professors of accounting at Brigham Young University Jim and Kay Stice review the accounting equation, the three primary financial statements, how to use accounting to aid decision making, and how income taxes figure into business and personal decisions. They use real-world example data from Walmart and other businesses so you can see how numbers drive everything from wages and product costs to home budgets.

In this course, accounting professors Jim and Kay Stice walk you through the four key steps in the bookkeeping process: analyzing, recording, summarizing transactions, and preparing financial reports. They explain the components of a journal entry (debits and credits) and the essential questions a bookkeeper/accountant asks in reviewing those transactions. They also explain how accountants translate ledger information into financial statements, and the role of computer programs such as Quicken in helping businesses manage their accounts.

This course covers purchase budgets, production budgets, hiring budgets, overhead budgets, and cash budgets. Professors Jim and Kay Stice help you weigh the impact of strict versus more moderate budgeting on employee morale, and show how budgets pay off in the future, when you can use them to evaluate your business performance.

Managerial accounting helps managers make decisions using an organization’s financial data. An understanding of managerial accounting helps you figure out how much a product costs, analyze when your company breaks even, and budget for expenses and future growth. In this course, accounting professors Jim and Kay Stice cover all the fundamentals, including costs and cost behaviors, cost-volume-profit (CVP) relationships, cost flows, standard costing and activity-based costing, and budgeting.

In this course, Brigham Young University business professors Jim and Kay Stice provide a comprehensive overview of finance, and touch on everything from reading a balance sheet to understanding derivatives and securities. They tackle questions such as “What is the difference between short-term financial management and long-term financing?” and “What is the difference between a traditional bank, an investment bank, and an investment fund?”

In this course, accounting professors Jim and Kay Stice provide an introduction to the most important business valuation methods. They proceed from the valuation of individual assets and liabilities to the valuation of entire businesses. The course includes practice with simple valuation models, such as the use of multiples and price-to-earnings ratios, as well as the more complicated “discounted cash flow” valuation model. The final chapters include a fun and practical examination of the value of one very real business, McDonald’s and some parting words of advice.

  1. If you are looking to grow your career and take on greater responsibility within your organization, you’ll need to demonstrate a basic understanding of financial management even if you’re not in a financial role. You do not have to be a numbers person! You just have to appreciate their role in business. In this course, accounting professor Jim Stice helps you develop the financial acumen necessary to:


    1. Interpret financial reports and make decisions based on available data.
    2. Manage inventory and receivables.
    3. Create an accurate budget.
    4. Cost a product or service.
    5. Analyze customers.
    6. Understand your income taxes.
    7. Communicate your contribution to the bottom line.

Accounting and finance professors Jim and Kay Stice will make filing this year’s taxes a bit easier for you by explaining basic taxation concepts and terminology. In this course, they cover topics such as taxable income, tax brackets, average tax rates, withholdings, deductions, and credits, and explain the motivation behind federal tax deductions for mortgages, dependents, and charitable giving. They review the steps involved in filing a personal income tax return, address some of the issues that corporations and small businesses face in filing their returns, and cover the benefits of tax planning.

A wealth of information is available to you if you know how to read financial documents. Being able to glean information from an income statement, a cash flow statement, or a balance sheet can give you an edge in understanding not only your own business but also your competition. In this course, Rudolph Rosenberg, a finance expert, takes you through the steps of making sense of what is contained in financial reports and how to read them.

Join professors Jim and Kay Stice as they introduce the theory, practice, and implications of revenue recognition. Together they demonstrate how this seemingly innocent accounting topic can turn a reported profit into a reported loss, sometimes with multibillion-dollar implications for company values.

Financial ratio such as ROI (return on investment) or ROA (return on assets) are a valuable tool for measuring a company’s progress against a financial goal, a certain competitor, or the overall industry. In this course, professors Jim and Kay Stice explain the financial ratios found on balance sheets, income statements, and cash-flow statements and provide examples from real-world companies such as Walmart, Nordstrom, and McDonald’s.
