Financial Management


Almost everything in business eventually boils down to the rupee sign,” so the adage goes. Hence,irrespective of what his or her primary area of work is, every manager needs a basic grounding in corporate finance. And the need becomes greater as one rises in the organisational hierarchy.
Often on-finance executives have an aversion or even fear of accounting and finance. This stems mainly from lack of familiarity. Years of interaction with non-finance executives has convinced me that if the basic of corporate finance are explained in a simple and lucid manner, negative feelings turn into positive appreciation. This course seeks to achieve this transformation.


Designed to demystify the field of finance, this course seeks to :

  • Impart a basic understanding of the accounting reports used in business.
  • Familiarise the participants with the financial environment of business.
  • Develop skills in applying financial tools and techniques.
  • Sharpen the finance sense of non-finance executives.
  • Facilitate meaningful communication among managers, using the language of finance.
