What is ‘Finance’?

Finance case studies cover the strategic approach to finance (e.g. setting financial objectives) as well as tools for analysing financial data in the business.

Key topics include:

  • Sources of finance - for business start-up as well as growing a business
  • Financial records and how to use them - e.g. balance sheets, profit and loss accounts
  • Setting and monitoring budgets as well as interpreting and analysing accounts
  • Looking at methods of evaluating the viability of the business, e.g. ratio analysis, gearing
  • Understanding the importance of cash flow to the business
  • Using investment appraisal tools to help decide if investment is justified and what outcomes it might deliver (e.g. break-even, annual rate of return, discounted cash flow, net present value)
