Who is the programme aimed at?

Profile

This programme is designed for professionals of various types (top management, heads of SMEs and micro-businesses, managers and employees) from all sectors of the economy. It will enable you to improve your understanding of the impact your decisions will have on the financial health of your professional activity, project or company, and simultaneously raise your efficiency as a manager.

Key admissions criteria

  • A university-level diploma or equivalent professional experience
  • Proof of motivation and a professional need to take the programme
  • English proficiency (language certificate or proof of studies/work experience in English)
  • Master the basics of Excel

A full grasp of accounting and financial operations

The programme will help you to hone your ability to take decisions by incorporating theories of financial planning. In addition, during the project assessment phase, you will learn to identify and manage risks as well as understand their potential ramifications for financial performance.

Complete command of financial language and concepts

The FNF programme provides the perfect way to raise your communication skills with the finance heads of your organisation, enabling you to identify more rapidly the key financial investment issues to be tackled. 

Financial assessment of a project and company

You will learn to incorporate your skill for identifying the components that help create value for a project based upon clear financial analysis, thereby enabling you to assess with greater accuracy projects or companies carrying such projects.

An understanding of financial stakes

The programme will enable you to develop a heightened sensitivity for budgets and financial indexes. You will also improve your understanding of the demands of managing financial targets and investment plans.

Managing financial tools

You will improve your command of financial tools and boost the financial health of your organisation by applying the best management and financial policy practices.

Active networking

The FNF programme will provide you with access to an active professional network that will also open doors to other sectors.

The choice is yours.

The Finance for Non-Finance Professionals enables you to take the modules of your choice. You can therefore customise your training in relation to your level of knowledge and requirements.

5 modules. 5 key stakes.

The Finance for Non-Finance Professionals programme is delivered over October-March and is split into 5 modules lasting 2-3 days each. The programme provides a blend of theory and practice, via case studies analysed individually and in a group set-up.

The FNF programme is also….

A unique approach

The programme will immerse you into an interactive teaching and learning approach based mainly on real-life case studies. Your experience and the issues that you face in your working environment will be taken into account via in-class discussions.

A programme of such high quality requires total personal dedication of all participants, including active involvement in all sessions.

End-of-year certification process

Participants who have taken the entire programme have the chance to carry out an end-of-year work project in finance plan format and therefore to be awarded the Certificat d’Executive Education en Finance pour Non-Financiers. This case study will enable you to apply the knowledge acquired during the training programme and is backed up by a business plan.

Participants.

The programme is delivered in a highly interactive fashion via a very dynamic teaching style where you truly feel that you are at the real centre of a concrete and pragmatic learning experience. Light is shed upon often the most complicated economic and financial theories. As a result, I have learned to distinguish between finance accounting and incorporating the time variable into my way of doing business. I am now better prepared than I have ever been to take investment-related decisions.

The FNF programme offers the perfect balance between the theoretical concepts of finance and a pragmatic and useful approach to learning and applying them. The majority of the components presented during the training are quick and ready to use, which represents an additional and immediate professional plus to the programme.

In today's increasingly competitive economic environment, it has become imperative to make the right financial choices. I was looking for advanced, structured training that would enable me to have a clear understanding of the latest financial tools as used and recommended by the experts. I've found it!
