Finance essentials - the statements

Category: MASTER COURSE

Part of BPP’s Finance for Non-Financial Managers programme, this course is for any manager wishing to understand the basic elements of the core financial statements and the associated terminology.

Who should attend?
This course is for anyone who wants to start to understand financial terms or processes or wishes to cement their existing knowledge.

What you will gain
This highly interactive course will see delegates build their own business as a group and produce a rudimentary set of accounts for that business. In doing so delegates see how accounts are constructed and see some of the basic accounting principles in action. Delegates will also start to understand why finance colleagues do what they do, why they ask for the information they ask for and what some of the financial jargon means!
