The practical and interactive sessions are designed to provide a thorough working knowledge of critical financial concepts. Learn how to interpret and assess financial statements, and understand how business decisions are hinged on the possible financial impact they may have. As global businesses today span geographies, the programme also intends to provide an overview of international financial management.
