Managing finance is one of the keys to business success. Today, more than ever, finance is the universal language of corporations – of their goals, objectives and results. Both business management and financial management are important for business survival and a competitive edge in a changing world with business and financial challenges. No matter how smart management teams are, all business planning and control will be measured and evaluated in dollars. Managers need to develop effective business plans and strategies as well as to manage costs, profit and cash.

To get and stay ahead, managers need to be "finance savvy." They need to know how to justify a request of capex budget, how to convert their business plan to profit and cash requirements, and how to control costs and cash before they get out of hand. This programme offers exactly what you need to enhance financial competency for business success and your management development.
