Management Accounting with MS Excel

This open course is in Polish - for further information about organising this course in-house, please contact us -

The economic environment is changing very quickly. The question arises how to gather the right information in order to manage the company’s risks and develop the company at the same time. We are interested in the information which will enable us to make the right economic decisions.

Enterprises prepare their financial statements including the balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows. For managers these statements are often the only source of information about their company’s performance. However they do not contain some internally generated information which could be used to optimise the company’s performance and to make strategic and operating decisions.
