This 2 day masterclass will be given by IMI faculty members in the IMI centre, Sandyford.  This is by far the most popular of the IMI’s short courses, and we are delighted to offer it to our members at a significant discount. 

The course will take place over 2 consecutive days –  April 30th and May 1st, and is suitable for all individuals who, irrespective of their level, deal with financial information and are responsible for budgets. Credit control staff will also learn how to avoid bad debts.

After completing this two day masterclass, attendees will have a solid working understanding of both the reading & interpreting of financial statements and how to prepare them.  They will be familiar with the various financial terms, and how to apply them, and will have an understanding of creating, managing, interpreting and delivering budgets as well as business cases.
