Abstract
The primary purpose of this project was to enhance my current understanding of accounting and business, while building my Microsoft Excel knowledge and skills in order to pursue my postgraduate goal of becoming an accountant. I want to become a CPA, a Certified Public Accountant, and to do so requires many hours of rigorous studying, multiple exams, and over a year of practical accounting application in gainful employment (NASBA, 2023). This type of long-term certification cannot be accomplished within the scope of this project, but what can be accomplished is taking the first steps in a mile-long journey. For this project, I selected thirty online learning courses on LinkedIn Learning that would cultivate my knowledge regarding accounting fundamentals, business understanding and management, financial statements and models, and Microsoft Excel and personal skill building. The following section describes key aspects of these courses.
