Learn the language of finance to advance your non-accounting career

It’s not easy being in a country where you don’t speak the language. Asking for directions, not understanding people and feeling helpless are confidence-draining experiences. It’s the same in business when growing responsibilities take you into unfamiliar territory.

For many people, finance and accounting is a foreign language spoken by experts in meetings where you feel out of place. But, like any well-prepared traveller who invests in a bit of language training, it is possible to learn the finance basics you need to help you along your career path.

Beppino Pasquali photoWhat The Non-Financial Manager Needs To Know About Financial and Managerial Accounting has been designed to transform the non-financial manager into a more effective team member who can propose, analyze and evaluate financial decisions. It does so by providing clear examples of the content, concepts and terminology of financial and managerial accounting systems. It also features our highest-rated instructor, Beppino Pasquale, to help make your financial learning practical and enjoyable.

The program explains the managerial trade-offs and key decisions which impact organizational results and helps overcome the trepidation often felt by managers who have had little exposure to financials.

“This program simplified business finances. Every manager, regardless of your department, should take this course,” said Mandy Paris, Supply Chain Manager at Aryzta Canada.

This popular three-day program starts May 2 and gains you continuing education credits for professional designation maintenance by both the Project Management Institute and the Human Resource Professionals Association.

For managers with some familiarity of accounting basics who need a more detailed understanding in order to measure performance, plan future action and make better business decisions, Pasquale also teaches Financial and Managerial Accounting for Non-Financial Managers: Beyond the Basics.

This program is designed for any leader who wants to learn to read the “scorecard of business” by applying more advanced techniques in their everyday decision-making process, such as using financial analysis to support key strategic business, management and resource allocation decisions. It is an ideal introduction to financial accounting for leaders who make key financial resource decisions and require a formal process for conducting financial analysis.

“This program takes the mystery and fear out of basic financial and managerial accounting by carefully explaining concepts and providing the practical tools needed to understand corporate decision making and financial analysis,” said Vasu Daggupaty, Team Lead and Policy Adviser with the Investment & Industry Division of Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Employment & Infrastructure.
