A carefully explained, understandable Program on business finance covering both theoretical concepts and the practical aspects of finance for managers and executives.
The useful and well-explained theories and practices on financial strategy and making financial decisions covered in this Program apply to both the private and public sector, and to limited companies, groups of companies, partnerships, cooperatives or other forms of organisation.
This Program first deals with decisions regarding how to finance the operations of an organisation, the stock exchange, gearing and dividends, with a balance of theory and looking at what happens in reality; the focus on finance covers how decisions are made on the most appropriate sources to finance particular investments and financing decisions. The Program then focuses on integrated financial decision areas which deal with matters combining aspects of investment, finance and management.
Although theory is covered, it is done so in a way which makes it applicable, understandable and useful to the men and women involved in finance and financial decision in the organisations for which they work - and for those looking for promotion within an organisation
