A basic understanding of project finance and organizational accounting is helpful but not necessary. If you are not familiar with financial statements (e.g. balance sheet, income statement, cash flows) you should take a short tutorial before the class or before Week 2. One option is the Khan Academy’s Accounting and Financial Statements mini-course.
