Business Finance

About the Level 2 Business Finance Certificate

This short course will teach you about the decisions underpinning corporate finance and give you the financial tools that could help you progress in your job role.

Over the suggested 100 hours of study, you will learn about book keeping, credit control, and notions of costing and pricing. You will learn to apply tools of management accounting with modules on budgets, cashflow, profit and loss which will enable you to ultimately create management reports essential in any business decision making process.

Who should study this course?

Middle and senior managers deal with a wealth of financial issues within organisations. This course introduces fundamental finance concepts, enough to offer a solid overview to any manager regardless of their area of expertise or qualifications.

None of the courses at Stonebridge Associated Colleges require prior experience in the intended subject of study. To successfully complete this short-term course in finance all you need is a means to access the online study materials and the motivation to finish it.

What happens after the course?

At the end of this finance course you will have a solid understanding of practical financial issues that take place in a business. You will be able to devise debt recovery procedures, conduct break even analyses, manage cash and cashflow and draw up basic financial reports. You can follow up your studies with a degree in finance, in a higher education institution. All the same you could apply your knowledge directly to the job role you already have.

Financial skills bring a real opportunity to any business professional. If you work as a retail manager, or a data analyst this type of course could set you aside from your peers in terms of career progression. If you want a professional change this type of study could help you towards positions like:

  • Chartered accountant
  • Economist
  • Stockbroker
