Finance for Non-Financial Managers

Finance for Non-Financial Managers

If you are a non-financial manager who feels daunted by discussions with finance professionals and want to quickly grasp the essentials of finance, this two-day Finance for Non-Financial Managers programme is for you.

This is not a ‘finance for dummies’ programme, but finance for non-financials who want a deeper understanding of the financial impact of decisions and the ability to monitor financial performance. Afterwards, you will be able to speak the language of finance and work more effectively with financial specialists.
