Financial Analysis for Non-Financial Executives


Horizontal Tabs


A multifaceted educational experience for non-financial executives who are already successful in their first language (marketing, procurement, engineering, technology, science, human resources, etc.), and who are looking to develop the global language of finance as their second language. Faculty Director Toshi Shibano, PhD, takes program participants beyond the nuts and bolts of accounting and finance through a total immersion into the mastery of the Three Dialects of Finance: Insight, Foresight and Oversight.™ Participants return to work with the confidence to join their companies' financial conversation and the skills to align themselves as strategic partners with their leadership. 

Hear from a former participant.

The program combines four disciplines: Financial Accounting, Corporate Finance, Management Accounting and Executive Effectiveness (strategy) and brings the concepts within these areas to life. Filled with lively interaction, practical application, and real-world guest speakers, the program is an unsurpassed experience in executive finance education. Over five days, the curriculum blends Professor Shibano's engaging teaching style with group break-out sessions, enabling participants to immediately utilize the concepts presented and practice using the language of finance. In addition to experiencing a greater depth of learning from each other, participants find comrades in business and some have forged lasting relationships.

Toshi Shibano, PhD
Faculty Director
" This was my sixth or seventh week of Exec Ed at Haas, and it lived up to the quality I have come to expect from my sessions at the school. The content, instruction and fellow participants were all first rate, and overall I fully met my goals and learning objectives for the course. The course offered an excellent framework for Financial Analysis, and worked through all the key concepts necessary to understand the lifecycle of financial reporting, analysis and decision-making. I feel significantly more empowered in my role because I now have a greater mastery this critical second language we all need in business.  Thank you for running such an excellent program, I truly appreciate the work you are doing and the value it has brought to my career. "
