Every senior executive and manager requires the skills necessary to make informed financial decisions to deliver value in their organisations. This programme focuses on the responsibilities of the non-finance and non-accounting senior executive for finance and financial accounting, reporting and analysis including cost reports and information, cost analysis and cost management. The format of this 5-week programme has been designed recognising the participant’s busy schedule, especially for those attending from out of Lagos. The participant also learns without group or peer pressure, as all participants (peers occupying similar positions in their companies) have no prior knowledge or skill in accounting, costing or finance. A small class size is maintained to ensure close faculty attention and foster individual learning.
