Having a big picture of your business enables you to have a broader focus on your own departments and job functions enabling you to make the link between your actions and that of the company’s overall business objectives. Today, companies seek to employ people who have an advanced understanding of accounting and finance, combined with technical skills in order to run the business.


This module uses a hotel management simulation developed by industry leaders. You will learn how to understand the story behind a company’s financial statements; elements such as the economic conditions, competitive strategies and change initiatives that impact the company’s ability to make money. These financial skills provide the filter through which management information can be directed to sound decision making and improved business results.


By the end of the Module, participants will be able to:


• Identify the important elements of interpreting financial statements
• Explain the importance of assessing the competition and the economic conditions of the marketplace to craft sound financial strategies.


• Analyze and interpret financial statements (P&L and Cash Flow Statements and the Balance Sheet)
• Utilize financial calculations and ratios to generate the most effective management decisions.


• Think like a business owner with a holistic view of the company’s objectives—understand the “big picture”
• Shift from tactical operational thinking to strategic leadership in competitive market conditions.
