Finance for Nonfinancial Managers
Finance affects everyone in an organization, through company performance metrics, monthly budgets, capital allocation decisions, or the strategic planning process. Managers in functional areas outside of finance may feel removed and often lack the vocabulary to interact effectively on finance-related issues. The seminar bridges this gap by making key concepts understandable. You’ll learn the importance of shareholder value initiatives and ways your decisions can help your organization create greater value. Ideal for senior-level and midlevel executives, managers in nonfinance-related functional areas, managers new to the finance function, and managers seeking to brush up on financial concepts.
