Why learn about finance?

Finance is the language of business. Understanding how financial performance is measured is crucial in order to make informed decisions. Everyone needs a basic understanding, whether you want to progress in your career, start your own company or simply understand the world of business around you.

"People looking at starting careers in finance will find Accounting Intuition's courses very useful in determining if they have the financial acumen to cut it in the world of finance and business."

Learn through experience

Most accounting courses involve an onslaught of technical jargon, financial statements and complex rules to remember; people get overwhelmed with information. We believe that this conventional way of teaching the subject is completely ineffective.

The best way to learn is through genuine understanding and experience. That’s why we've developed visual, interactive models that explain accounting transactions and balances using the analogy of water pipes and tanks and let you develop an intuitive understanding of how accounting works as a simple, connected system. Watch the video to see the models in action.
