NQF Level 5 | Business School | Short Course

The Eduvos Managing Finances Short Course provides the junior executive with an opportunity to get ahead and succeed. A good manager has a keen understanding of the impact of every action in the business on the financial aspects of the business. This short course will enable the learner to manage the finances of a unit and identify elements that may lead to financial risk in the business. Many people are traditionally scared of looking at the financial aspects of a business, but this short course takes away the guessing and gives practical tools to manage budgets, understand the basic finances of the unit and monitor, assess and manage risk.
