Finance for the Non-Financial Business Owner: Becoming as Smart as Your Banker

April 7, 2010

DePaul University-Coleman Entrepreneurship Center’s "Business Owner Academy" is offering a course titled "Finance for the Non-Financial Business Owner: Becoming as Smart at Your Banker & CFO"
Financial matters are often the most challenging, intimidating, or overwhelming part of running a business. An accountant, banker, or CFO may help with the work but, as the business owner(s), you must have a firm grasp on what the numbers mean and how to use them to the firm’s benefit.
In this course, you will learn how to maximize cash flows, improve profitability, and manage their companies’ finances more effectively. With peer business owners, you will engage in hands-on activities and achieve milestones such as: seeing what truly drives your cash flows and profits; learning how to use financial statements to make operational decisions; and understanding how to increase the value of your business.
