Financial Analysis for Non-Financial Executives
The program’s modern approach focuses only on financial topics that the non-financial executive uses in their day to day activities and management. The FANFE program avoids being highly technical, and instead creates an environment in which executives can build their “intuitive” understanding of financial terminology and concepts. Faculty work with participants to go beyond the “mechanics” of finance and create an action plan that allows for strategic and practical application in their daily management.
