About

When it comes to numbers, there is always more than meets the eye.  In operational finance, you will learn how to read the “story” that the balance sheet and income statement tells about the company’s operations. 

The insights you gain from this “financial story” will then become a tool for short-term decision-making at the top management level relating to current assets, current liabilities and the management of working capital. 

Finally, by the end of the Operational Finance - Finance for Managers Course offered by Coursera in partnership with IESE Business School you will understand the financial consequences of managerial decisions on operations, marketing, etc.
