The Basics of Business Finance

This course is designed to give you a good understanding of the basics of business finance. You will learn how businesses are funded and what the money’s used for; how they make profits and generate cash; how to measure business performance; where to find the information you’ll need.  You’ll see how income statements and balance sheets work and you’ll also understand key financial jargon, concepts and commonly used financial metrics. 

Understanding Financial Results and Annual Reports

If you need to know how to analyse financial information as part of your job or if you are responsible for communicating financial results, this course is a perfect way of getting to grips with the numbers and key ratios.  We use retail giant, Walmart to make the learning real.

Understanding Shareholder Value

By the end of the course, you will have a good understanding of shareholder value, including what it means from a shareholder’s point of view; what it means from a company’s point of view; the levers a company can pull to create more value and making the link with strategic actions that drive value creation.

How you will learn

Our online courses are on demand, so you can do them whenever and wherever you like. You can use any device with speakers or headphones other than a phone as the screen will be too small.

We use visuals, audio and plenty of interactivity to keep you interested and alert. You can control the pace and can recap at any point. All courses come with a briefing paper for you to download and keep.

You will have 4 months to complete your course (longer if required).

If you have questions or you’d like to discuss any aspect of the course, you are welcome to email or phone your tutor.
