Financial understanding and planning can make or break a business. So it’s vital you know how to read and understand your company’s numbers yourself – even if you work in a function like marketing, legal or HR.
This 100% online, self-paced programme explores key financial concepts over four modules. You dive into the numbers with a learning simulation – and get the knowledge you need to make informed business decisions.
This programme is divided into four modules, each focusing on a different aspect of financial management.
This online journey brings together learning formats including videos, simulations, exercises, quizzes, case studies and real-life examples. You’ll also have background reading to do and questions to help you reflect on your own experience.
In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to put theory into practice and become confident at making financial decisions. By the end of the programme, you’ll be ready to leap into finance discussions and projects in your organisation.
You can start Essentials in Finance at any time – and study wherever and whenever suits you. It takes around 10 to 12 hours to complete the programme and you can split this time over a maximum of three months.
On this programme, you’ll live and learn key financial concepts – such as balance sheets, profit-and-loss accounts and cashflow statements – through hands-on examples and a simulation game. And you’ll gain the knowledge to make sound business decisions so you can leap confidently into discussions with colleagues.
