Cash Flow Cycles and Analysis - On-demand
CFI is a global provider of online financial training courses with a focus on practical applications. Most courses involve hands on Excel tutorials, which take participants beyond the theory to develop job-based skills. All participants are automatically issued certificates of completion after successfully finishing each course. The price of the course varies and are based on a function of a few criteria including, (1) their duration (CPD hours), (2) level of difficulty, and (3) demand for the topic.


In this Cash Flow Cycles and Analysis course, we look at how companies manage their cash flow. We will explore both the operating cash flow cycle and the investing cash flow cycle. We use real-world examples to calculate a company’s working capital funding gap. Then we will go over important strategies companies can use to optimize their working capital accounts.

From there we will look at the longer-term investments such as sustaining or expansionary capital expenditures. We will assess the payback time on a project and look at the return on investment. In the end, we'll combine what we learned and produce a cash flow statement to compare key metrics such as net income, EBITDA, cash flow from operations, and free cash flow. Throughout the course, we'll be looking at things from both the lender's perspective and the borrower's perspective so you'll have a full picture as a complete credit analyst of how to forecast and optimize cash flow for a business.

    Upon completing this course, you will be able to: 

    • Discuss the difference between a company's short-term operating cash flow and long-term investing cash flow
    • Compare working capital objectives and capital investment objectives
    • Calculate working capital funding gap, investment payback and return on investment
    • Use a company's financial statement to conduct a cash flow analysis and compare key metrics
