Financial Management For Non-Financial Managers

Intertwine with financial figures

A healthy organisation needs a management team that understands finance. This is non-negotiable. In today’s competitive global environment, a minimum of financial knowledge is highly recognised and appreciated by every company, as this simply enables you to make better business decisions.

You would like to have an overview of, and impact on, the happenings in your organisation at a higher level? In that case, you need to know how to deduce interesting information from an annual report, how to draw up a financial report, and how to establish budgets and interpret key financial figures in the blink of an eye.

Your goal is to improve your communication with financial managers and to ask the right questions. You want to go beyond financial figures to demonstrate the performance of your business unit. Do these aims hit the spot? Discover the detailed programme here.



If the regulations change, we will reconsider which format is best suited for this programme. You can rely on our agility and know-how to adapt your programme’s format to create the best solution. So, whether you learn with us on campus or online – or a hybrid of the two – you can be sure of a great experience.

  1. Fear of merger and acquisition market collapse due to Covid-19 proves largely unfounded

    Only one in three M&A experts surveyed noticed a decrease of more than 20% in the number of deals in 2020. Furthermore, the average acquisition price across all deal categories remained more or less stable. Smaller transactions of less than €5 million did take a hit: there were fewer deals, and acquisition prices were lower. Moreover, the uncertain economic situation led to deals taking longer to conclude, and there was an increase in the use of deferred payment mechanisms. For 2021, the experts predict that the market will recover to its pre-coronavirus level, especially when it comes to private equity transactions. Those are the most important conclusions of the eight edition of the M&A Monitor.
