About the course

Managerial roles are increasingly getting cross functional and interdependent. Financial impact of any managerial decision-making is all pervasive, with the need for a non-finance manager to assess the impact of his functional decisions on the top line (Sales) and the bottom line (Profits), becoming indispensable.
