According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20% of U.S. small businesses fail within the first year. By the end of their fifth year, roughly 50% falter and after 10 years, only around a third of small businesses survive. One of the primary reasons why small businesses fail is that they often overlook the importance of effective management of their finances. Small business owners may know how much fund is needed on a daily basis or how to generate revenue, but are often unclear about the cash flows that their businesses are expected to produce and the risk associated with such cash flows.

A lack of knowledge on future cash flows can lead to critical issues related to financial planning and budgeting, since small business owners must make sure that they have enough cash on hand to pay employees and suppliers, or to make necessary investments for business planning or other purposes. Planning and budgeting for such financial needs are crucial, especially when business owners must decide whether to fund these needs internally or borrow from outside lenders. This six-week, non-credit certificate is designed to help you succeed in a challenging business world, whether you are looking to launch a home-based business or open your own store.
