About The Event


Course Overview:

Basic knowledge of finance is essential for all professionals, even if they do not have a direct role to play in the finance and accounting departments of the organisation. Managers who lack the capacity to make intelligent assessments of financial data will find themselves handicapped and unable to understand the impact of their strategies on the financial bottom-line.

KnowledgeHut’s two-day course in Finance for Non-Finance Managers cuts through complex financial information, explaining principles in simple terms that can be easily comprehended by the layperson. The practical and interactive sessions are designed to provide a thorough working knowledge of critical financial concepts. Learn how to interpret and assess financial statements, and understand how business decisions are hinged on the possible financial impact they may have. As global businesses today span geographies, the programme also intends to provide an overview of international financial management.

This course will equip you with a collection of tools and insights to enable you to fulfil your professional goals as well as the expectations of your companies and investors. Having completed this course, you will be able to assimilate and analyse financial data, evaluate financial risks and communicate effectively with the financial team. Improve your planning and budgeting skills, sharpen your business acumen; and learn to make the right money-related decisions that notch up your business numbers!
