Financial Management for Executives

Finance is the circulatory system of every business. Without knowledge of finance, a manager can hardly recognize the implications of decisions, give direction in his area of responsibility in a goal oriented manner. The better the knowledge of finance, the more professionally can one reach results-oriented decisions which further develop the business and its financial potential.
4 Day(s)


In Financial Management for Executives, we demonstrate how a business, department, or profit-centre should be financially managed in order to achieve sustainable and continual increases in performance and value.

In order to be successful, every manager should master the instruments and control mechanisms of financial management because it is he/she who must recognize and answer for their effects on strategies and returns.

In a comprehensive, systematic, and comprehensive format, this seminar makes clear which pertinent financial decisions should be reached from an executive perspective, and which direction and objectives should be given to controlling and the finance department.
