Finance is central to most organisations’ decision-making.

It will provide you with a thorough understanding of the principal methods and techniques of financial management and give you a framework of reference enabling you to deal with complex financial issues and to handle them effectively. The strategic focus of the course will enhance your ability to analyse any situation and to make sound strategic decisions.
