Programme Enquiry

Managers and line supervisors who receive management reports but are from a non-financial background. Accounts staff who prepare inputs to management information systems.

Accounting is sometimes described as the language of business. To be effective, managers need to be financially literate. They need not be experts, but need to be able to interpret figures and understand what lies behind them. The fundamentals of finance can readily be grasped in three days, by which time managers will be equipped to perform their own jobs better, communicate better with their accountants and contribute better to the management team.
