Kutztown SBDC: Accounting 101

SmallBizU eLearning University
Accounting 101: The Fundamentals
Take command of a bookstore and coffee bar and see how money moves in and out of a business while learning the fundamentals of accounting at the same time.

This course provides an in-depth look at each of the primary accounting transactions used in a business, demonstrating how "the language of business" works. Without using any accounting jargon, this course demonstrates how to keep score in a business through a simple scorecard approach.

When you are finished, you are shown that each of your scorecards represents one of the three primary financial statements used in managing a business.
Before you start...
Just like any course, there are many sections to our curriculum. Don't try to do it all at once. Instead, do it a little at a time as if you were attending individual classes for a given course. For instance, try to complete three to four sections at a time. Allowing approximately 30-40 minutes per session, this course will be completed in 3 sessions.

Also, don't forget about your course tools. Much of the value of SmallBizU resides in your tactical toolsets that accompany each course. It is helpful if you review these tools before starting your course and then again after you finish.

Most importantly, if you need help or assistance the key is to just ask. There is more free help and assistance available through local Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) and SCORE Centers.

If you require technical assistance or help with SmallBizU, contact a SmallBizU Advisor.

These courses are provided free of charge. However, we ask that once you have completed the course you complete a short survey. This will allow us to report the overall performance of the course as is required by law. Click here to begin this survey. If you do not complete this survey within a week, we will send you a reminder.
