Financial Analysis for Non-Financial Executives

The program’s modern approach focuses only on financial topics that the non-financial executive uses in their day to day activities and management. The FANFE program avoids being highly technical, and instead creates an environment in which executives can build their “intuitive” understanding of financial terminology and concepts. Faculty work with participants to go beyond the “mechanics” of finance and create an action plan that allows for strategical and practical application in their daily management.

  • Our approach to developing your financial literacy emphasizes the following:

  • We distill complex financial issues into actionable insights and practical applications.

  • We apply the program content to your own business realities.

  • We build your confidence to discuss financial trade-offs and to ask the right questions.

  • We offer you insights drawn from our experience as researchers, teachers, and consultants for world-class global companies.

  • We provide comprehensive program materials, readings and glossaries that will serve as helpful resources in the future.
