In modern organisations, finance and accounting functions are not just focused on simple cost reduction strategies, but are involved in improving planning, driving efficiencies, and providing enterprise-wide insights. A functional understanding of finance and accounting by non-financial managers and decision makers can be used to better harness these insights and align business strategy effectively.
The Accounting for Investment and Managerial Decision-Making online certificate course will equip you with the financial and managerial accounting skills you need to make better business and investment decisions, and enhance your organisation’s performance.
Over the course of eight weeks, you’ll explore the building blocks of financial reporting, gain an ability to interpret income statements and balance sheets, and discover how to clearly communicate the results to business stakeholders.
Drawing on real-world lessons from practical case studies, you’ll also explore how to evaluate costs, efficiencies, and profits to create a sustainable culture of improvement, and learn to precisely set budgets and targets that fit your organisation’s risk profile. Finally, you’ll learn how to create incentive, monitoring, and feedback systems that inform decision makers and drive results.
