Enhance your managerial competencies in this finance course for non-financial managers.
To effectively drive organisational success, business leaders and managers across functions require a firm grasp of finance. It’s a key component to understanding how an organisation operates, and these professionals need to be commercially-minded to participate in financial discussions and decision-making.
The Managerial Finance online certificate course from LSE equips you with a practical grounding in modern finance. Over the course of six short weeks, you’ll develop the tools to understand corporate finance, financial statements and reports, and fundamentals such as the time value of money. You’ll also learn how to apply these to your business context through forecasting methods, project evaluation, realistic performance plans, and the monitoring of financial outcomes. Increase your managerial impact with stronger financial insight, and make more informed contributions to organisational discussions and decisions.
