How will this program benefit your organization?

It is vital for public and non-profit organizations to have their financial affairs in order. Finance is a precondition for everything these organizations want to do for society. Supervisors and managers are often responsible for this. This requires proper knowledge of financial management. Sound financial management at every level helps you reach your organizational goals.

  • This also improves the overall management of the organization, as supervisors and managers are better able to confer with financial colleagues.
  • The organization contributes even more added value to society because employees can keep a close eye on costs and potential savings.
  • Finance supports the organization better because employees learn how to translate the strategy into financial policy.
  • Discussion of current events and developments keeps the organization up-to-date on the latest trends in financial management. So it can respond more effectively.
  • The organization gains better insight into potential internal and external risks that could stand in the way of its goals.

DE TIAS EXPERIENCE OF MARIEKE OLDEWARRIS

“As a ‘non-financial’, I got a lot out of the Financial Management Master Class. My theoretical knowledge grew by leaps and bounds in just a short time. The power of this master class lies mainly in practical application. The result: not only can I read financial documents more easily, I can discuss them with financial experts in our organization. I can highly recommend this master class to managers and directors looking for solid financial foundations for decisions in their work.” Marieke Oldewarris, Director, VerpleegThuis

A WORD FROM OUR ACADEMIC DIRECTOR

“Financial management for non-profit and public organizations is fundamentally different from commercial enterprises. They have a different objective, a different starting point, which makes the entire financial cycle different. They also face different challenges. I specialize in the financial issues at play in public and non-profit organizations. I conduct research, and I also advise a variety of public organizations. I believe a combination of scientific theory and practical application is vital. This is why we deal with this topic in the master class. This enables participants to put what they’ve learned into practice right away, and help brainstorm solutions to challenges with financial implications in their own organizations.”
