This module is designed to enable you to become more confident in the use and limitations of financial information and, thus, interact more effectively with both financial and non-financial management. You will learn how to assess and use financial information, both that provided to external stakeholders (financial statements) and assist in the management of the organisation. In addition, you will produce financial information which you will develop to help solve business problems, including alternative techniques for evaluating major investment projects and explore ways in which they may be financed. The module also explores how financial management and business performance is monitored and managed, how value is created and maintained and how it is distributed to stakeholders. This will include a number of context including not for profit organisations. There will also be an opportunity to reflect upon relevant corporate governance and ethical issues.
