Today’s rising managers need both financial acumen (knowledge) and financial acuity (practical insight and application) to succeed in their organizations. Even the most talented individuals reach the point in their careers when future advancements and promotions are contingent upon a specific set of crucial skills — among them a sharp managerial appreciation of accounting and finance.

Financial Analysis for Non-Financial Managers is designed to fill in that key gap. In each half of each day of the program, the curriculum seeks to achieve these educational goals through a combination of interactive lecture, class discussion, and group-based cases and analyses.

At the end of the program, you’ll be equipped to evaluate your organization’s finances, interact with your organization’s accounting and finance professionals, and put your knowledge into action through superior financial analysis and decision-making.
