The Fast Forward MBA in Finance Second Edition–more necessary than ever!

Even Einstein might have had a hard time making sense of the numbers that come out of the typical accounting department. These critical financial figures of a business should be presented in rational, decision–friendly accounting reports to managers. Unfortunately, accounting reports generally fall short of this mark. That′s why managers rely on John Tracy and The Fast Forward MBA in Finance to help them understand all the accounting and financial information so critical to making sound business decisions.

In this robust update of the popular first edition, Tracy explores the natural starting point for managers–the financial statements–and reveals the essential meaning of each. The financial statement framework is then expanded and modified for the decision–making functions of business managers. Practical examples illustrate how to use management models for analyzing profit, cash flow, and capital investment, all of which are clearly explained with a tight focus on the information needs of individual managers.

The Fast Forward MBA–– the compact business companion you′ll use every day!
