Finance for engineers

Focuses on providing technical folk with the necessary financial tools

Finance for engineers

Course Overview:

People that fulfil engineering and technical roles are usually wizards at the technical aspects of their jobs, but often struggle with the financial implications of their projects and decisions.   


Course Outline:

This one-day course focuses on providing technical folk with the financial tools to perform their jobs in a way that truly adds value to the business.

You will cover: 

  • What capital budgeting is and why every company should do it
  • The concept of discounted cashflow and how it is used in two critical investment appraisal tools – Net Present Value (“NPV”) and Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”)
  • How these tools compare to more traditional ones such as Payback Period
  • How a business is valued and therefore how you can make technical decisions that create value rather than destroy it
