Finance is one of the key functions in any organisation. It contributes significantly by ensuring that an organisation remains viable, is able to operate properly, and achieves its objectives. In an enterprise, the finance function helps in enhancing the value of the firm while supporting sustainability practices. This course enables you to understand key financial and non-financial concepts and tools as they are used in practice across various sectors. It is important to appreciate how the finance function fits in an organisation, representing essential skills in any workplace or environment. You will also be enabled to interpret financial data to inform effective business decisions.

In this introductory course, you will use case studies and work in teams to review relevant numerical concepts and work with some quantitative finance concepts. You will apply project evaluation concepts to real world examples such as a new product proposal from a marketing and brand management department. Options for raising capital will be examined to determine ways of funding the project assessed. Financial analysis of the firm and project risk mitigation are also examined. This course uses real world scenarios and case studies and collaboration to solve problems and effectively communicate your decisions.
