Program's message

Financial statements are important tools that are used to inform business leaders in their decision-making.  Individuals in positions such as Accountants, Chief Accountants, Chief Financial Officers, and Chief Executive Officers as Investors, often use and extract data from financial statements to help them improve production performance.  However, not everyone is trained to understand how to extract information from the financial statements to advise their supervisors or to make rational investment decisions.  Therefore, the Financial Statement Analysis program will provide professionals with insights on how to analyze financial statements, including using the latest information techniques such as ratio analysis, trend analysis, classification structural analysis and indicators analysis, and others.

Financial statement analysis requires the ability to translate and interpret data with the purpose of making informed financial and investment decisions.  PACE understands that analyzing financial statements is not an innate ability, but a trained skill.  Financial personnel need to not only acquire strong knowledge in accounting and business administration, but also need to attain systematic and specific logic skills.  As Vietnam is increasingly being integrated into the global economy, this landscape presents challenges and potential volatile changes that will require financial personnel to update their skills and strengthen their ability to analyze financial statements, as well as attain a higher level of financial knowledge overall.    
PACE’s training program on Financial Statement Analysis will help learners understand the importance of  analyzing financial statements, as well as how to use the most current techniques to address complex problems within the context of a global economy.
