Finance and Accounting for Business Leadership
Accounting and finance are the language of business, the key measurements of your organization’s successes and failure. This seminar introduces participants to several financial topics that form the foundation for practical executive decision-making. The program sessions provide useful tools for professionals who come across financial information in their daily work but may not have a strong background in finance. Participants from a broad range of industries will benefit from this seminar.
The objective of this seminar is to help aspiring professionals better understand financial information and how it can be applied in their decision-making process. Participants will be introduced to the three primary financial statements: income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flow and how these statements should be read and analyzed. There will also be a short introduction to various financial ratios along with an overview of other key financial topics such as valuation, capital structure, and capital budgeting.
