Course Objective

One of the problems facing many non-finance executives is their inability to understand and apply basic principles of finance and accounting to their day-to-day and longer-term management activities. As managers climb up the organizational hierarchy, they become increasingly involved with financial aspects of their decisions. This would in turn require the regular use of various financial concepts and tools.

This program is designed to provide functional Business Managers with an appreciation and understanding of financial concepts and tools that they would require for most of their decisions. In short duration programs as this one, the emphasis is typically on breadth of coverage and the nature of the concepts and tools is such that great depth of understanding comes about through their application in actual decision making. By equipping the participants with a knowledge of the underlying fundamental aspects, this program aims at creating the basic groundwork on which depth of understanding can be obtained subsequently.

The program covers a diverse set of areas such as financial analysis, project evaluation, funding decisions, business valuation and value drivers, analysis of cost information, the use of spreadsheets infinancial decision making, and so on.

Who Should Attend
