Develop a greater intuition for the budgeting aspect of finance in your firm so that you can win support for your most important initiatives. This course provides a crucial bridge between you and the rest of your organization with respect to finance-related issues. We’ll learn and apply the analytical tools corporations commonly use to make strategic resource allocation decisions. You’ll get a better sense of how the finance team looks at investments and decides where to allocate resources, and you’ll be better equipped to make a case for the initiatives you believe will create the most value for your organization. After all, in today’s competitive marketplace, companies that use resources wisely have a huge advantage over those that do not.

*The current healthcare situation requires that the Olin Business School provide participants with learning conditions that protect the health of participants, business school staff, and faculty. As a result, Olin faculty are prepared to deliver their sessions either live, or virtually, as regulations and circumstances permit. Our default model will be live seminars. However, if conditions prohibit face-to-face coursework, we will switch affected seminars to virtual delivery via the Zoom platform.
Olin instructors have been delivering their content virtually since the crisis surfaced, with exceptional results. If a session is executed virtually, we will charge a per participant per day of $765 (instead of the usual $920).
We appreciate your continued patience as we evolve our offerings.
