Essential skills to progress your career in finance 5 course pack

This five-course pack from BPP seeks to develop the skills needed for finance professionals to meet the changes they are now facing in their roles. Times, and perceptions, have changed. Increasingly businesses are looking to finance to be more of a partner in their success and less of an overhead. This change of perception has led to increasing opportunities for finance professionals within businesses, away from the day to day processing of journals or budgets. This change of direction has also become a challenge; do finance professionals have the appropriate business and relationship skills, and behaviours, to meet the new role? 

This pack aims to provide knowledge and a development structure that will enable you to meet the changing demands of the modern day finance professional. By completing this pack, you will gain a better understanding of: 

  • communicating effectively 
  • how to give excellent presentations 
  • the nature of management and leadership 
  • the key elements of effective project management (using prince 2 methodology) 
  • how to negotiate successfully.
