Program Manager

Executives and managers need a clear understanding of the basic financial and accounting principles essential in running a business. Not only does this let them interpret financial reports and data about their organization and the market they operate in, but it also lets them exchange information in a more compelling way with colleagues, suppliers and clients, and make better-informed management decisions.

The goal of this program is to give business leaders who hail from a non-accounting background the opportunity to acquire the knowledge they need to develop a solid grasp of the concepts, processes and tools employed in corporate finance.

The successful completion of this program entitles you to a digital certificate. These credentials are trusted, secure, verifiable, and sustainable.

  • Read and interpret financial statements
  • Use financial tools to make better management decisions

  • Assess prospective investment deals

IS THIS FOR YOU?

SPECIAL FEATURES

Testimonial(s)

"As a physician now in charge of initiatives in the business world, I felt I needed to better understand the numbers and to be able to decipher financial statements in order to assess the state of health of a corporation. Thank you, Executive Education HEC Montréal, for this superb winter session leading to my certification in corporate finance. I now have better tools to lead thriving healthcare and technology companies that are financially sound."

- Vincent Dumouchel, MD, Founder & CEO, Redeo API

“I thoroughly enjoyed the program and the fresh look it takes at the principles that I tend to touch on in my job but don’t often consider in any depth. The learning approach was exactly what I was looking for, and I’m sure the experience will help me in working toward my career goals.”
