Discover the story behind the numbers

An annual report gives a picture of the financial capability of your company. But how do you read the balance sheet? This programme tells you the story behind the numbers in the annual accounts. You learn to understand the balance sheet, profit-and-loss statement, cash flow overview and how to carry out a ratio-analysis. You become familiar with the most relevant essential concepts and put it into practice with real-life examples.

Want to learn how to use financial terminology and how to assess the health of your organisation via an interactive and professional approach? Come and join.


 
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.
