Financial Management for Project Management Professionals
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.
