Learn critical financial fundamentals and be able to more confidently communicate with financial practitioners, understand how to analyze and evaluate financial decisions, and contribute more to the creation of shareholder value.
Creating and maintaining shareholder value is a key focus in today's business. In addition, as practitioners, it is critical that people understand how finance works within their organization from the investment and expense side of the equation. It is critical that people are able to understand how finance can be used as a tool to manage and run the business in order to use it to their advantage and a key strategic driver of the organization.
The goal of the Finance for Non-Financial Managers program is to provide leaders and decision-makers who do not possess a strong grounding in finance, an understanding of how money works inside their organization and how money can be used in making decisions. This program is filled with instruction and case studies and topped off with a financial simulation to ensure participants practice their new-found knowledge.
Upon completion of this program, participants will gain critical skills in financial fundamentals and have the ability to understand how money flows within their organization, as well as communicate implications with more confidence to drive business results.
