This course introduces basic financial concepts that lay the foundation for financial literacy. These financial concepts have varying relevance and different applications among public, private, and non-profit organizations. To understand these varying relationships, the course will focus on comparing and contrasting the use, non-use, and relevant application of financial concepts across sectors. Students will begin developing a skillset for applying these concepts appropriately to varying organizational types and structures. Additionally, the assessment of financial conditions will be combined with other indicators, such as an organization's strategy, to learn how to diagnose an organization's overall health.
