As a manager, it is imperative to know that there are financial consequences to every decision made. These decisions have an impact on the business that could either be beneficial or detrimental to its survival. In business, finance is a common language, and is the centre of all business activities. Learning basic financial skills even as a non-financial manager assists in making sound decisions when situations affecting your team’s interests arise. When advocating for decisions that have financial implications on the company, it is important to understand how these decisions will affect its finances. Apart from the other core management elements, it is also essential to understand what sets finance apart. The basis of finance is understanding that its value is not imminent; therefore, this forward-thinking approach needs to be considered when making decisions.
At UKZN Extended Learning, we offer a Finance for Non-Financial Managers programme. This programme helps delegates confidently contribute to financial discussions by gaining the necessary financial skills when leading a team. Therefore, it is paramount to understand what goes into running a business and what it takes to portray a clear perspective on its goals and financial state. The knowledge gained through this programme enables business executives and managers to make more informed decisions, shaping them into well-rounded leaders with a progressive mindset. This programme empowers delegates looking to improve their financial literacy leading to a seamless process in the business.
