The purpose of this unit is to provide a solid basis in financial literacy. Through studying this unit, you will gain knowledge of both internal and external reporting for financial decision making. Rather than generating data, the emphasis in on how to interpret financial data, and being able to critically evaluate this data to be able to make decisions about the financial performance of the venture and how this could be improved. Such knowledge is imperative when starting up a venture or managing a business unit/function within an organisation. You will have the ability and confidence to critically question the underlying assumptions and ensure enough information has been provided to make valid judgements. These are essential components of beginning a business venture, taking it in a new direction or managing an existing business (or not-for-profit entity). You will also learn how to maintain a sustainable business, and to question other businesses sustainability.
