You will learn about management and reporting from an experienced Chief Financial Officer. Modern management of a company without reporting is impossible. You know this from daily experience when you use a GPS navigation system: Without GPS, you don't know where you are, and you don't know which direction you are going.

Reporting is the key management tool for measuring the status, performance, and direction of an organization.

Using real-life cases, we will examine and discuss the aspects and elements of reporting.

There will be NO WRITTEN EXAM at the end of the course, but you will earn your credits through classroom presentations and active participation in classroom discussions.

Come join us and look forward to the course!
