Description

Three are three main reasons for business failure – an under-skilled management team; ineffective marketing; and poor financial management. Every manager, or student of management, requires a good grasp of business finance. This course will help.

Business finance concerns the management of the monetary resources of an organisation. There are two aspects to this:
