Who should attend

This program benefits those in a leadership or executive role responsible for creating or implementing strategy. Prior knowledge of finance is not necessary.

About the course

It is critical for leaders to understand how business decisions impact financial results and how constraints shape business decisions. All too often, operational leaders and strategic decision-makers are siloed from their counterparts in finance. This program focuses on connecting business decisions with their financial consequences and views finance as an operational element of a successful organization. As you gain familiarity with the tools and techniques of managerial accounting, you will begin to deploy finance to empower your business decisions.
