Finance and Accounting for the Non-Financial Manager

The program teaches the core concepts of finance and accounting in a straightforward and easy-to-understand manner, including terminology and principles, financial statements, distinction between income and cash flow, and valuation. You will learn how financial data is used to make business decisions and to evaluate a firm's performance. A primary objective of this course is to make its content applicable to your own business or managerial circumstances. You are taught to relate the numbers of finance and accounting to business reality and to assess whether financial reports depict that reality faithfully. Since we believe learning is enhanced by real applications, case studies are used daily. They are prepared by small groups of participants, and then discussed by the class as a whole.
