WORKSHOP OVERVIEW:

This Seminar is aimed at middle to senior managers from disciplines other than finance who wish to understand financial management princip les and concepts and how
they are put to use in businesses of all sizes. The course explains the fundamentals of finance with the assumption of basic numeracy skills and provides a good
understanding of standard financial statements and operational messages that can be derived from them. It then examines finan cial and performance ratios, the
applications of sales pricing, costing, interest and borrowings, taxation, investment, performance measurements, risk mitigat ion and hedge fund operations. In Financial
Management for Non-Financial Managers, you'll learn the essentials of finance and accounting, including financial reporting, cost management, performance management and
capital expenditures, then go back to work with the ability to manage your own bottom line.

Emphasis on this Finance course is placed on getting participants to use the knowledge and skills gained in class immediately in their work and personal life. For successful
completion of the course, business knowledge and experience are more important than the size of the organization; owners of SMEs will find it equally suitable as senior
managers of very large multinationals or consultants to large businesses.

The Financial Management for Non-financial Managers Programme is designed to provide non-financial managers with more advanced understanding, knowledge and skills
in respect of financial statement analysis, cash flow analysis, the time value of money and the basics of capital budgeting. This will help participants to understand the
drivers of capital decision-making and project evaluation. They will also gain a better understanding of the impact of operating decisions on the financial health of the
business..
