Three-Day Finance for Non-Financial Managers Programme
COVID-19 has negatively affected a myriad of professions across all industries throughout the world with adaptation to new business opportunities to stay ahead of the game vital for survival and possible future prosperity.
The challenges presented over the past year were unique and many businesses were not able or prepared to respond accordingly. Companies needed to react tactfully and strategically to reduce the possibility of bad decisions and subsequent financially crippling outcomes.
Savvy financial managers play a vital role in advising businesses through this pandemic - their direction and guidance are crucial for companies and businesses to successfully navigate through unfamiliar territory and perform financial best practice.
At UKZN Extended Learning, we offer a three-day Finance for Non-Financial Managers Programme in which delegates have the opportunity to get to grips with the financial and business acumen required to meet organisational needs. The aim of the course is to instill confidence in delegates through providing them with a clear understanding of finance-related skills which they can then take and use practically in their work situations.
Usually, non-financial managers depend on a range of tested and proven strategies and models to combat business challenges but at the Extended Learning Division we prepare our delegates to implement an innovative and refreshed systemic approach during the current global crisis.
Delegates will gain an improved ability to understand and analyse financial statements; apply budgeting and forecast techniques; and implement capital investments, ratio analysis and risk management. Non-financial managers will discover new possibilities within the industry with knowledge gained on the programme laying a foundation for them to become better decision-makers all round.
This programme is significant for those who do not have a financial background and the delineated content framework has been specifically designed to accommodate individuals new to the world of finance.
The current crises caused by the Coronavirus does not automatically mean the end of the road for businesses, especially if staff are well equipped to face the challenges head-on.
