Today’s managers need to be more aware of the financial aspects of the organisations for which they work. Managers who do not have to manage a budget or finances themselves, need to understand the key aspects of the financials of the organisation, and the impact of their actions on the organisation’s financial success.
This course will provide you with key information required to understand the financials of an organisation – focusing on what all of the financial statements of an organisation mean from a non-finance point of view.
This course will benefit managers and individuals who have little or no financial or accountancy training and require financial and accounting knowledge and skills to manage their business areas more efficiently and effectively.
