TOP REVIEWS FROM FINANCIAL ACUMEN FOR NON-FINANCIAL MANAGERS
Level of Difficulty is good. Challenging at times to executives in firms who don't have much exposure to financial aspects of the firm. But grit will help you go through the course and complete it.
Would be helpful if more case examples were provided from the health industry, such as health service organizations, pharmaceutical companies, or private health insurance companies.
This Course was very helpful and providing an excellent knowledge about Financial Results with proper integration with non-financial performance. I really enjoyed the course !
It is a good course and was helpful. The multiple choice questions were tough because it felt like there wasn't enough information to\n\nanswer them effectively.
