In today's rapidly changing economy, every executive needs to be able to master the language of finance and accounting, know what questions to ask and evaluate the financial implications of any business decision.

Finance and Accounting for the Nonfinancial Executive provides executives with limited financial background the opportunity to gain a practical understanding of financial concepts and become more discerning of possible problems. As part of the program, faculty coaches guide participants through the program's signature Corporate Financial Analysis, a hands-on detailed financial analysis of their own company or a company of their choosing to optimize their understanding of what the financials really mean for their businesses.

Overview

In five days of hands-on, interactive sessions, Finance and Accounting for the Nonfinancial Executive provides you with a unique opportunity to deepen your expertise of finance and accounting for better management and decision-making capabilities.

The program features sessions on the role of accounting, key concepts of managerial and financial accounting, ratio calculation, and analysis of your company and shareholder value management.

A hallmark of this program that is unmatched in other Executive Education programs is the Corporate Financial Analysis, a hands-on detailed financial analysis of your company, or a company of your choosing with the help of faculty coaches. The analysis results in a customized financial profile that summarizes how the specific business is doing. Faculty coaches help you read this profile on different levels, discuss the importance of each number for your business and be able to tell how your business is doing based on the figures, assessing strengths and areas for improvements.

At the end of the program, you will have mastered key finance and accounting concepts and understand the relationships among profitability, cash flow, liquidity and growth, and identify the red flags in financial statements -- highly important in the current volatile financial context.
