Financial Decision Making for Managers BAA515


This unit aims to develop your ability to interpret and use financial information as a manager. It is concerned with developing your understanding and stimulating your interest in financial and accounting concepts, issues and problems rather than with educating you to undertake the role of a professional accountant.

This unit is taught face to face in intensive mode and a unique gaming and simulation approach to learning is used. The aim of this approach is to engender a 'deep' understanding of financial concepts, issues and problems as they relate to managers in their decision making.
