Loading Information

Improve your financial skills and acumen.

Employees with limited financial skills make daily decisions in business that often have a notable impact on the organisation's financial standing.

However, many people do not understand the importance of assessing how their decisions impact the organisation's bottom line. Not being able to interpret financial statements fuels this lack of understanding.

This programme is for those who want to improve their understanding of the financial ramifications of their decisions  – whether these relate to an impact on the income statement, balance sheet or cash-flow statement. Through interactive virtual sessions, practical exercises and interpretation of financial statements, this course helps delegates gain the necessary financial skills to ‘lift the veil’ surrounding financial data.


This course is part of a number of select programmes which include the offer of access to Linkedin Learning – online learning video courses. Access will be made available on the first day of the GIBS programme and extends two months from the date of completion of the course.
