About the course

Realize Your Financial Capabilities for a Competitive Edge

Business fluency in the basics of finance is a critical skill for any leader. Finance training is more than the basics of understanding financial statements - it’s about elevating you as a sought-after and skilled business leader. Critical analysis of financial statements is essential for assessing a company’s vitality and making strategic decisions that significantly impact business performance.

Financial Data Analysis for Leaders is a finance program geared towards non-finance managers that demonstrates how to create value in a business through financial analysis, cost management, and profitability ratios.

With the ability to interpret and apply critical analysis of financial information to your decision-making process, you will enhance your leadership capabilities, identify business opportunities, and enhance your company’s valuation - regardless of your job function.
