Every business opportunity needs to be analysed and viewed with a financial lens in terms of profits & risks associated and the impact it has on the company’s financial statements. This program focuses on this financial jargon and concepts which is a requisite in the corporate world. The non-finance executives generally remain so engaged with managing their own jobs that they are hardly able to find time to learn about the other areas. Rising the ladder of one’s managerial career when one is required to oversee a business unit, it is imperative for the general manager to have knowledge of all functional areas and especially finance. In this online finance course, we will aim at understanding the accounting and financial concepts by those from non-finance backgrounds starting from the basics. This course requires no prior familiarity with finance. Rather, it is intended to be the first step for anyone who is curious about understanding Finance.
