Description

The emergence of regulatory policy as a major impact on an organization’s costs and competitiveness as well as the combined impact of fiscal and monetary policy on financing for organizations are causing CFO/Controllers to understand the impact of decisions well outside their control in order to survive and grow. The financial services bill (Dodd-Frank Bill), health care reform, shortfalls in Social Security, unfunded liabilities, and deficit spending will all be explored relative to their impact on the CFO/Controller and your organization. This course provides guidance to the financial executive in dealing with the financial and accounting issues of these volatile financial markets that the global economy is currently experiencing. Useful tools will be explored to deal with these macro-economic forces for the CFO/Controller.
