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.


 
Planning ahead can be challenging these days. But you can rely on us to have the agility and know-how to adapt the format of your programme if we need to. So whether you learn with us on campus, online or a hybrid of the two – you can be sure of a great experience.
