The finance management is perhaps the most crucial and challenging of all the functional areas of management. Every member of the organization contributes to the overall growth of the organization. But those belonging to non finance areas often are not able to understand growth perspectives in terms of numbers. Keeping this in mind IMS Ghaziabad is organizing MDP on Finance for Non-Finance Managers on May 03, 2014 at its Lal Quan Campus. This program seeks to equip the non-finance professional with the basic set of tools and techniques from the finance discipline. Armed with these, the manager will be able to gain an insight into the exciting world of the financial management of a company.
