As organisations and business become more global and increasingly disparate, it is essential that executives have a firm grasp of finance to ensure that they maximise value. Exploring the diverse financial challenges facing today's decision makers, Finance for Executives provides executives with a comprehensive introduction to accounting and financial analysis. It aims to give executives,who are not financial specialists, an understanding of the financial consequences of strategic decisions and equip them with tools to integrate the financial approach into their decision–making. In this intensive and comprehensive programme, you will progress from the basics of reading financial statements, to much deeper insights such as M&A, risk management and value-based management. By better grasping the language of finance, you will significantly improve your ability to communicate with accounting and financial departments within your organisation.
