This course offers a comprehensive approach to understanding the importance
of financial management in managing projects and programs. Corporations invest a
large amount of money in capacity creation based on certain financial
assumptions that protect the assets of organizations. Project managers thus have
the obligation and responsibility to ensure proper use of capital assigned to
them and to meet all project objectives.
Time is money and project managers must appreciate the importance of
financial management in financial accounting, managerial accounting, and
corporate finance to make effective project decisions.
Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in
Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class
time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at
least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
