Finance 1

At the most fundamental level senior managers should possess a high level of competence in the use of financial information, whether it is information generated for internal or external consumption. Finance 1 has been designed for non-specialists, to make you confident in discussing financial information with professional accountants and financial staff. It does so by providing a conceptual framework of accounting, enabling you to understand the theoretical reasoning behind financial reporting and decision making in practice. It seeks to give you the level of financial literacy you will need to interpret and make use of both published and internally generated financial information.
