Possible English Course on “Reading Financial Statements in Japan”

Some of our past Director Boot Campparticipants have asked if we could provide an English-language course on “reading financial statements as a board member” as a follow-up to their “Boot Camp” experience.

This would be a course that would solidify one’s understanding of accounting, elementary finance, and how to analyze and interpret financial statements. It would be intended for persons who have some level of knowledge of accounting and these topics, but not a high level; or for those who simply feel unsure about their knowledge about what to focus on, or how to assess company strategy and performance from time-series analysis or comparisons with other firms, etc.

If you have interest in such a course, please let usknow. If there seems to be sufficient interest, we will designand offerthe course.
