About the course
The information contained in financial statements often forms the basis for examining and reviewing past decisions, underscores discussions in the boardroom and sets the agenda for the future direction of the company.
The aim of the Finance for Non-Financial Managers course is to give managers from a non-financial background the essential tools and knowledge to make informed, objective financial decisions.
The course is presented in a non-technical fashion, designed for managers and executives with responsibility for managing budgets who have limited or no financial background. Accounts and information sheets will be provided along with a contextual analysis of recent financial news and topical subjects.
Excellent course, very informative and practical and trainer was very approachable.
The tutor explained everything in great detail and had lots of great examples to help me better understand our own accounts.
