Short course in Financial Management (Investec) - E-learning

Interests: Finance / Management


It is imperative that private specialist practices are managed as a well-functioning business. Private practices require financial thinking and smart decision making by these specialists. Specialists training unfortunately does not prepare the specialist for managing a practice and more specifically, dealing with money matters.The FPD launched the short course in financial management to assist specialists who are SAMA members with developing a strong foundation in the basics of accounting and financial literacy. We would like to avoid decisions being made without analyzing the risk and reward or the profit and cash flow of the particular practice. This course will impart the knowledge necessary for private practitioners to understand and manage the financial aspects of their practice.
