Course Overview:
Successful business people can be even more effective given a better understanding of the commercial considerations that interact with their own discipline. This programme is specially designed for non-financial people who recognise the benefit of understanding how the financial side of the business operates. The course is led by a marketeer, not an accountant, who takes a practical, pragmatic view of money matters and translates the jargon, conventions and formats of accounting so that they become useful tools for the delegate. Case study work and practical exercises form an important part of this programme reinforced by tutor led discussions.
