A manager’s success depends largely on his or her ability to manage a company’s assets. This mission is complicated by the interdependent nature of a company’s finances. One short-term financial problem, such as cash flow shortage, can cause a longer-term credit problem, such as denials for bank loans. The successful manager must be able to quickly identify and resolve such short-term problems in order to prevent long-term deleterious effects. This course is intended for effective business managers and entrepreneurs and is designed to help managers pinpoint, remedy, and prevent business and financial problems. The course covers every facet of daily financial business management and also points out potential ripple effect problems that could affect other sectors of business operations.
