Finance and Costing for SMEs


Indian Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indian economy over the last five decades. These enterprises play a catalyst role in the development of industrial and commercial activities.

If you need a basic understanding of financial statements, product costing and working capital management, this is the course for you.

This course will help you to answer the following questions – How healthy is this business? What does the balance sheet tell me? How much is the company worth? Is this project really profitable? What do those annual reports mean? For how much should I sell the product? What are the costs involved? How do I manage my day-to day running of the business?
