Finance for the Non-Financial Manager training centre in Bangladesh


Finance for the Non-Financial Manager


Finance is an important functional area. However, most executives in functions other than finance e.g., HR, have little knowledge of it or may have forgotten what they had learned. Senior managers are required to take decisions cutting across departmental boundaries. Managers, as they progress, are increasingly exposed to financial information and hence need financial literacy. This course fills this gap.

Participants will get a basic understanding of the meaning, role and scope of Finance in modern business. Managers will be able to see how Finance impacts their operations and vice-versa, for example as regards working capital. They will appreciate concepts like ROI and be able to exchange meaningful information with upper management. Managers will be comfortable using financial terminology.
