Online Certificate in Financial Management
As a non-financial manager you need to be able to interpret and discuss the financial activities within your organization in order to make informed decisions. While the finance managers may be responsible for making specific financial decisions at your firm, your ability to understand, analyze, and communicate financial data is crucial to your long-term success. In this interactive online series from Cornell, you will study the conceptual frameworks necessary to effectively articulate project and investment proposals to decision-makers, as well as gaining the ability to review and discuss proposals with your organization's financial managers. Case studies are used to bring the material to life in fun, engaging ways, and to ensure that the information can be readily adapted to meet your specific organizational challenges.
This certificate consists of the following six, two-week courses, and is powered by eCornell:
- Understanding Financial Statements
- Using Ratio Analysis to Evaluate Financial Performance
- Mastering the Time Value of Money
- Making Capital Investment Decisions
- Risk and Return: How to Identify, Measure, and Incorporate Into Capital Budgeting Decisions
- Raising Capital: The Process, the Players, and Strategic Considerations

Registrations are being accepted now for all courses. All courses are delivered online using eCornell's Structured Flexibility delivery methodology.
