Financial Basics

In our "Financial Basics" programs, we convey the basics of internal and external accounting.

Practice-oriented and easy to understand, the annual financial statements with balance sheet, profit and loss account and cash flow statement as well as cost accounting and cost management are classified in an overall context.

It was a very professional driven training, on which I learned a lot on finance, which I can benefit from in my daily work as Program manager. Especially the board game helped me a lot, to understand the complex accounting activities. I can recommend to everybody of my colleges to attend this training.
