About This Class

Alex P says "The title is 100% correct, I truly learned 101 things I did NOT learn in school.  Very practical and great content.  Thanks for answering my questions as well."

Wes B says "MBA schools need to hire you to rewrite their courses.  So much more real world information is included in this course.  I feel like I'll use more from your course than I do from my MBA degree."

As a MBA student, you'll be learning a lot.  Once you get in the real world though you realize there's a lot, A LOT, they don't teach you.  The real world, intangible, topics that I am here to teach you.

Supplement your text book MBA knowledge with these 101 real world lessons!

By the end of this course, you will feel empowered and ahead of the pack!

In this course we literally go through 101 lessons you will never learn in a MBA classroom!  Having earned a MBA from a Top 10 school, and going on to a successful career in accounting and finance as a CFO, I've seen and heard it all.  Now you get to share in the inside secrets!

This course is broken down by general professional disciplines.  Some lessons apply to all, so there is a Generic section at the start, and one at the end, of the course.  The course is completely video, taught by 

Chris Benjamin, MBA & CFO is a seasoned professional with over 20 years experience in accounting and finance.  Having spent the first 10 years of my career in corporate settings with both large and small companies, I learned a lot about the accounting process, managing accounting departments, financial reporting, external reporting to board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and working with external auditors.  

The following 10+ years I decided to go into CFO Consulting, working with growing companies and bringing CFO level experience to companies.  I help implement proper best business practices in accounting and finance, consult on implementation of accounting systems, implementing accounting procedures, while also still fulfilling the CFO roll for many of my clients which includes financial reporting, auditing, working with investors, financial analysis and much more.  

Thank you for signing up for this course. I look forward to being your instructor for this course and many more!
