How should I prepare for the Finance & Accounting for Non-Financial Managers programme?
We recommend that delegates give some time to consider what aspects of finance and accounting they feel they need to know about in order to for them to carry out their work duties effectively. Being able to apply key concepts of the programme to actual working situations is the main objective of the programme.
Does the programme involve any pre-programme tasks?
Programme delegates will be sent pre-reading materials prior to the session. It is expected that they would have read the materials and thought about the case studies prior to the start of the programme.
What are the programme hours and is hotel accommodation locally recommended?
Programme hours on both days are 09:00-17:00 with 15-minute coffee breaks in the morning and afternoon and a 60-minute break for lunch. In order to get the most out of the programme, we recommend that participants arrange hotel accommodation nearby. Please contact the admin team for information about recommended hotels.
How many delegates are normally on the programme?
Attendee numbers are capped at 25. Experience shows that these delegate numbers make for optimum learning outcomes.
Does the programme involve any group work?
Delegates are strongly encouraged to be fully engaged in all aspects of the programme, which will include group activities. The Academic Programme Director will ensure that all delegates have the opportunity to fully explore and discuss the programme content together.
Is there a requirement to prepare any type of presentation during the programme?
No pre-programme preparation is required. However, there will be opportunities for informal study-group presentations as a result of class-room discussions.
Will there be any reading to do at the end of Day 1 of the programme for Day 2?
No – all pre-reading materials will be sent before the start of the programme.
Will I be awarded any type of certificate on completion of the programme?
At the end of the two-day programme, delegates receive a Certificate of Attendance that can be used for CV purposes.
After the programme if I have some questions about applying what I learned, can I contact the Academic Programme Director?
Our Academic Programme Director is available to answer any questions participants may have after the programme.
