Finance for the Non-Financial Manager

Improve your business acumen and financial savvy. 

Managers and leaders are required to understand more from a financial perspective than ever before. Knowing how to read financial statements can be invaluable in analyzing business opportunities, assessing financial risks, and communicating ideas to others. As a result, the Institute for Professional Excellence (IPEx) created the Finance for the Non-Financial Manager workshop to provide a firm foundation in finance issues and how finance is used for decision making, analysis, and valuation. 

From accruals to receivables and payables, this one-day workshop shows you the concepts, tools, and techniques that can help make each decision pay off both on the job and on the bottom line. The program includes a business simulation.  In the simulation participants engage in running a fictitious business incorporating a variety of fundamental financial basics from the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statements, including concepts like ratios, component percentages, margins, turnover, EBITDA, break-even, economic value added, and business valuation.
