I am sure you will enjoy this course as a beginner.

Income Statement is at the heart of finance - as you know how important profits are for a business.

This course will help you kick start in the world of finance. This course focuses on teaching income statement in a very simple manner so that a non finance student can also learn it with ease. This course will simplify terms like EBITDA, EBIT, EBT, PAT etc.  You will also be able to learn 5 profitability ratios including Gross Profit Margin, Operating Profit Margin, Net Profit Margin etc.  We will not leave it to only fundamentals - but we will apply the learnings to a practical example of DMart (which is a renowned retailer in India)

Remember - you only learn by repeating things... so repeat this course whenever you get time (do it more than one time)

Finance seems to be very difficult for many. Coming from IIT background (technical), I faced really hard time learning finance. I want to put things in as simple way as possible so that you don't face hard time learning it.

Fun is very important part of learning. Fun should be integrated in learning otherwise you get bored. I have tried including examples which will excite you and will help you complete the course in one go.

Who this course is for:

  • Beginners in Finance
  • Entrepreneurs
  • MBA
  • Job Seeker
  • Commerce students
  • Engineers wanting to learn finance


Simplifying Finance | Cleared Level 3 of CFA Program

My journey in the world of Finance began after spending approximately three years as a software engineer. Today I have 6 years of experience in teaching students for the CFA program, Financial Modelling and Analytics.

I am an alumnus of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), where I obtained my degree in Computer Science Engineering. Seeking to expand my horizons, I pursued an MBA in finance at a renowned institution, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Rohtak.

During my MBA studies, I discovered the significance of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program, often regarded as the gold standard in the field of finance. The initial level i.e. CFA level 1 was particularly tough, as it introduced me to a plethora of unfamiliar financial terms and concepts.

However, my determination and perseverance led me to overcome these challenges and successfully clear the exam. I faced a hard time clearing the exam and my goal is to simplify it for you.

As I progressed through CFA Level 2 and Level 3, I found that the material became more comprehensible and manageable. Today, I am passionate about simplifying finance for others. My content is tailored to benefit job seekers, entrepreneurs, MBA students, commerce enthusiasts, and anyone eager to learn finance and simplify finance in an innovative and approachable manner.
