Course programme

Finance has been taking center-stage status over the last one and a half decades. What was earlier considered a discipline too technical is today increasingly being embraced by professionals from fields as diverse as manufacturing, marketing, and human resources. What has led to this heightened awareness of the need to understand finance? On the one hand intense competition in product markets has forced companies to think beyond revenue maximization. On the other hand highly liquid and competitive markets for funds have forced companies to focus on providing maximum value to the providers of that scarce commodity- capital. Thus, today, companies are forced to think in terms of justifying their every action in clearly defined financial terms. Today, managerial performance assessment is more closely aligned to the objectives of maximization of the wealth of capital-providers than ever before.Starting with the objective of the firm and an understanding of the financial system, the course progressively builds up concepts and aids the participant in applying these concepts to decision situations from various non-finance functions.The aim of the course is 1. To appreciate the conceptual background of financial management.2. To understand the financial impact of decisions taken by the executives in different discipline.3. To develop financial policy in your area of responsibility.4. To develop guidelines to measure success in financial terms.5. To appreciate the requirements of the provider of finance.6. To improve the knowledge of financial terms to interact with the managers of other competing firms.Program Contents Basic Accounting Concepts 1. Basic Principle of Accounting2.
