Program Overview

For many leaders who work outside of the finance department, understanding financial information can be daunting. However, to be a strong, well-rounded leader, you should have the ability to question and discuss financial decisions as profitability and financial health are core business goals. Understanding and evaluating financial decisions are the backbone of sound judgment and good decision making. Without these skills leaders are making decisions blindly, thus hindering the business's ability to grow and thrive.

Fundamentals of Finance increases your comprehension of accounting and financial management so you can better understand your impact in driving performance and reducing risk in your day-to-day activities. You'll leave with the confidence you need to have productive conversations with your finance peers, integrate financial information into your business function, and make more informed decisions.
