Many highly qualified university graduates are appointed to senior positions within companies, where they are required to understand and run the finances of the business. Even more graduates find it difficult to grow in the corporate world and choose to use their skills for their own benefit, starting their own businesses. The problem is that they lack the skills needed to control a business’ finances!
This Skills Based Training Course has been designed to equip persons who do not have the academic qualifications in Financial Management, to understand and control the finances of a business. The idea isn’t to create little “Financial Wizards”. On the contrary, many qualified financial managers have found benefit from this practical course.
The assumption is made that the learner has no prior knowledge of financial management whatsoever. In certain of the modules, the learner is supplied with programmes which have been designed in Excel and are extremely user-friendly.

Each delegate will be handed a full and comprehensive set of reference notes. The notes, handouts and programmes are copyrighted to PBS College.
