Understanding the world of finance
As organisations and business become more global and increasingly disparate, it is essential that executives have a firm grasp on finance to ensure that they maximise value.
Exploring the diverse financial challenges facing today's decision-makers, Finance for Executives is a comprehensive introduction to accounting and financial analysis. It aims to give executives who are not financial specialists an understanding of the financial consequences of strategic decisions and to equip them with tools to integrate the financial approach into their decision-making.
This programme is designed to increase your skills in communicating effectively with those in finance and accounting to ensure that your organisation’s functions are better integrated, significantly boosting the firm’s overall value. As a result of attending, you will contribute to ensuring a sound financial basis for your organisation’s strategic planning and decisions.
