Finance for Non-Financial Executives
The programme is designed for anyone who is in charge of a budget and who seeks to understand and analyse financial reports and also forecast future performance. The aim is to give business leaders and decision makers a strong grasp of finance language, terminology and skills in analysis. The programme empowers non-finance managers to communicate effectively with accountants and finance managers. Using practical and real-life case studies the programme will explore numbers in business financial statements and reports in order to provide an understanding of how day-to-day decisions and activities impact the financial performance of your business. Participants will be able to analyse the performance of their business and make improvements in areas that are not performing to satisfaction. The programme will also boost your literacy with financial language and terminology. Managers will learn how to spot financial opportunities and how to take advance of them. Participants will also learn practically how to investigate the cost and benefits of investments.
