The aim of this course is to provide participants with an introduction to the financial issues and techniques involved in managerial decision-making and control. Financial decisions and their implications have to be considered by all organisations. The accounting function cannot be viewed in isolation from the other key functional areas of management and it is important therefore, that managers understand the integrative nature of financial decision making both at an operational and strategic level. The course will also aim to develop integrative, analytical, reflective and managerial decision-making skills.
This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in finding out more about financial management.
