Financial Management

York University's Schulich School of Business and University of Saskatchewan's Edwards School of Business come together to transform the non-financial manager into a more effective team member, who can propose, analyze and evaluate financial decisions in WHAT THE NON-FINANCIAL MANAGER NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT FINANCIAL AND MANAGERIAL ACCOUNTING.

Introduction & Background:

A complete introduction for managers, director and administrators. Over 3000 business leaders with increased financial responsibilities have attended.

Transforming non-financial managers by providing clear examples of the content, concepts and terminology of financial systems. Featuring Schulich Executive Education Centre's highest-rated instructor to help make your financial learning practical and enjoyable.

The financial concepts are easy to understand and apply immediately to your workplace. An ideal course for leaders who must frequently apply financial tools to analyze their own problems and projects.

"My experience with the training course was really positive. Beppino Pasquali was an excellent instructor as he uses an easy-going and humorous approach to teaching this material. He did a good job of demystifying finance from terminology to financial jargon and ‘buzzwords’ and put them into easy to understand layman’s terms. Prior to the course, I found myself continually failing to effectively use financial statements and data that I was receiving to full benefit. I was immediately able to put my new found knowledge and understanding to use when back to work. I now feel more adequate in making decisions with a fuller understanding of the workings of finance. I would recommend this training course to anyone that is uncertain about making business decisions without adequate understanding of the financial back-up that is provided in the financial reports." - Guy Beatty, The Willows Golf & Country Club
