Finance for Senior Managers and Directors

As a director, your financial role extends beyond management to financial strategy, corporate governance, group structure and stakeholder expectations.

This comprehensive course will help you communicate and contribute more effectively at board level discussions. You will also gain insight on the strategic aspects of financial management and understand key methodologies used to ensure your financial direction is being aligned to meet business objectives.

Is it right for me?

This course is suitable for directors, both executive and non-executive; also for senior managers close to board level who wish to participate in financial matters more effectively.


It is suitable for those with little or no prior financial training, although those with some financial grounding will still benefit significantly.
