From understanding financial statements to analysing them, from cost impacts to variance analysis, from decision making to budgeting, this training course gives hands-on practical experience to non-financial managers to understand the concepts and techniques to help them in key decision-making areas, which in turn gives impetus to the bottom line of the business.


Financial information can give a clear picture of incidences that have happened, and a sound basis for forecasting future events. It can also display whether activities are cost-effective, whether objectives and targets have been met, and can be used to gauge and measure comparative performance and profitability.


This training course will empower you to be prepared to make more powerful and informed business decisions. From understanding the essence of cash flow to learning how to create value on a corporate level. This program covers all major principles of corporate finance.
