'Finance for the non-financial manager' with Dr Aly Salama
A fundamental part of successfully running a business is looking after its finances. Managing finance is concerned with the efficient and effective management of the finances of a small business or an organisation in order to achieve its objectives.
- raising funds (Financing Decisions)
- allocating funds (Investment Decisions) and
- controlling the resources (e.g. Dividend Decisions against retaining and reinvesting earnings).
The primary objective of corporate managers is to create value with a view to maximising shareholders' (owners) wealth, and that in this process; financial managers are entrusted with making various decisions.
Managers should have a clear understanding of the essential aspects of financial and management accounting and principles and practices of modern finance to be effective in their jobs. Concepts, techniques for evaluating investment opportunities, and methods of strategic financial decision-making issues facing managers are the key factors that contribute to any business success. Managing finance plays a major role in helping busy working professionals to learn about the major concepts, guidelines for business, tips needed to successfully examine and evaluate nearly any business-related issues, and the crucial issues of business and financial management. It provides important business background and appropriate knowledge for anyone working in, or thinking about working in, business industry. It is also relevant for people who may be offering more general financial guidance to people in their everyday lives.
