There is a powerful amount of information contained in financial reports, data, and language. With an understanding of that information and how to apply it, professionals across the company can make better decisions, leverage innovative opportunities, and improve the performance of the company overall.
This engaging program is designed for nonfinancial mid- and senior-level professionals who need a better understanding of financial concepts, or those who want a refresher course. The program learning builds from the basics of finance to more complicated concepts through an easy to understand, interactive approach. The program will review recent events in the U.S. financial markets and explain how they affect you and your organization.
Throughout the program, there is an emphasis on the immediate application of the knowledge and skills gained, often within the context of the participant’s industry or company situation.
Specifically, you will gain a toolkit of knowledge and skills that will enable you to:
-Read and leverage data from financial reports including balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements
-Assess the profitability and costs of projects, products, innovations, and initiatives to determine which are worth investing in or maintaining
-Use your financial knowledge to improve decisions, planning, and budgeting processes
-Understand the language of financial colleagues and gain insights into the organization’s performance
The educators for this program are Virginia Soybel and Victoria Sassine.
