“After the course I felt that this finance course is specifically designed for non-finance folks like me who are at mid to higher level of management. This course gives the basic tools and techniques which helped me to decode the financials reports and financial jargons which were always flaunted by finance guys of our company.
The small caselets and the engaging assignments empowered me enough that I can contribute in the financial discussions of the products am handling.”
