    This text is designed for students in Master of Public Administration programs. It could serve as the core text for a comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate course on public financial management. It could also complement university courses or continuing professional education on public finance, public budgeting, tax policy, and non-profit finance. It covers the core concepts and analytical tools of accounting, financial statement analysis, cost analysis, and budgeting, all with applications to public sector organizations. The text is organized around financial management strategy. That is, how do managers in public sector organizations use financial information to design programs, implement policies, and advocate for their organization’s mission? Read the book here!
