Alternative courses on the same subject: Mindedge has a Retail Math class which covers all the basic arithmetic formulae and calculations necessary when calculating key retail numbers. It is a good class to take if you do not have a good understanding of basic maths before you start to study the financial classes. NRF’s Principles of Financial Reporting class is suited to store managers and potential store managers who need to understand and interpret financial reports, particularly related to periodic trading statements. Martec’s Retail Financials module is more geared to headquarters personnel who need to analyse a company’s financial statements to identify long term trends and performance improvement opportunities by analysing the profit and loss account, balance sheet and cashflow statement along with selected key performance indicators. Companies selling goods and services to retailers will also find this helpful.
