Know Your Numbers 2 - GMBA822

All managers must have a basic understanding of financial management concepts, capital markets and instruments, as well as the trade-offs between financial risk versus gain. This unit provides you with the understanding of the tools and techniques in financial management. The main goal of the unit is to prepare you for responsible and sustainable leadership using the financial management perspective. It develops a framework around financial analysis and modelling, as well as business, risk, and investment evaluation by focusing on four main areas: (1) the assessment of an organisation’s financial health, (2) the planning of the organisation’s future financial performance, (3) the financing of the organisation’s operations, and (4) the evaluation of business and investment opportunities for the organisation. Emphasis is placed on the application of tools and techniques to real world problems in financial management to enable you to solve related problems in your place of work.
