“It might not be important in early stages of your career. You can get by without being able to read a financial statement. But at some point you have to provide financial justification for what you're doing, and you have to make decisions based on numbers that come from other people. If you don't know what you're looking at, and you don't know the right questions to ask, your effectiveness is diminished.”
– Professor Christopher Ittner, Wharton Business school

The lecturer made it super easy to understand the complex subjects and to make connection to my day-to-day work (which stakeholders need what information). I also liked the case method.
