Financial Management

In many organisations the accountability and responsibility for budget management and control has been cascaded down to individual departments, budget centres and to individual budget-holders. This creates a need for those with the responsibility for these areas to understand the financial arrangements, the process of budgetary preparation, costing systems and budgetary control reports and documents available to assist in managing the budgets.  This intensive online course is designed to provide key insights and understandings for accountable budget-holders and those who support them in fulfilling this key role.
