Finance is the foundation of all enterprise. Competitive and dynamic organizations need their entire leadership teams - from executive vice presidents to line managers - to have the financial literacy to make well­informed decisions and to understand risks and returns.

Over the course of three days, Demystifying Finance provides the ultimate crash course in the basics of finance, accounting, budgeting, and financial analysis. The course is designed for non­financial professionals seeking to expand their effectiveness and performance. Participants learn principal terms, concepts, and skills applicable to their professional business roles. No prior financial knowledge or education is required.

Focusing on real­world, practical application, the program emphasizes action over theory and examines current issues, events, and best practices in finance. Sessions cover the basic areas of finance in a straightforward and accessible way through lecture and discussion, group work, and some pre­class preparatory reading. Session topics include Finance: Cost of Capital; Finance: Overview of Markets; Accounting: Financial Statement Analysis; Evaluating Investments; Finance and Accounting: Introduction to ROIC; and Finance: Financial Decisions and Value Creation.
