May – 1 day
May 5 @ 9:30am - 5:30pm
On our financial analysis and finance for non-financial managers training course delegates are given the opportunity to understand and interpret company accounts.
- What do the key line items really mean?
- How do the accounts link together?
- What’s interesting about what’s buried in the notes?
- What are the key ratios?
- How could the statements be used in investment analysis?
On the program course delegates choose their own case study and bring a set of financial statements with them, reviewing and analysing the statements with their class mates and the course tutor, using the accounts to generate meaningful information right from the start of training.
The course is designed to enhance participants’ commercial awareness, better enabling them to improve their own commercial position.
The course is conducted in a work shop format, with the emphasis on “learning by doing”. Much of the learning occurs in exercises and group discussion where participants are encouraged to share experiences, apply new-found knowledge and bench mark best practice across their class mates. Although grounded in accounting and financial theory, the focus of the program is on the practical and pragmatic application of concepts to real-life situations.
