Finance for Non-Finance Managers

CFM – Centre for Financial Management


Almost everything in business eventually boils down to the dollar sign, ”so the adage goes. Hence, irrespective of what his or her primary area of work is, every manager needs a basic grounding in finance. And the need becomes greater as one rises in the organizational hierarchy. Often non- finance executives have an aversion or even fear of accounting and finance. This stems mainly from the lack of familiarity. Years of interaction with non-finance executives has convinced experts that if the basics of finance are explained in a simple and lucid manner, negative feelings turn into positive appreciation. This course seeks to achieve this transformation.


Under the esteemed guidance of Dr.Prasanna Chandra, the Director of Centre for Financial Management – our expert & experienced faculty will conduct Training Courses in accordance with the CFM curriculum. Dr. Prasanna Chandra has been a gold medalist throughout his university career and has five decades of teaching experience in postgraduate and executive education programmes. He has authored over 10 books and written numerous important articles. He was also a Professor of Finance at Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, for over two decades.
