This course introduces participants to commonly used financial terminology and performance measures so they can make sense of the “dollars and cents,” and learn to make better use of financial information in everyday work life. It was designed to give participants – especially subject-matter experts who assume financial responsibilities upon a managerial promotion – a better understanding of their departmental monthly financial reports and the transactional origins behind the numbers. Topics include economic decision-making concepts, balance sheets and income statements, financial ratios, and project cash flows.
The manager or engineer who does not possess a significant financial background, but whose performance would be improved with a working knowledge of financial statements and related concepts
"As an engineering professional with no financial classes, the Finance for Non-Financial Managers training is an excellent introduction into how to read and understand financial information that companies use."
