Additional Information

The Foundations of Management specialisation is a series of courses that aim to help you master business management fundamentals

No matter what industry you work in or where you are in your career, a basic understanding of financial, marketing and decision-making principles and other management fundamentals will help you achieve your professional goals – be it getting promoted in your current job, getting ready for a MBA program, or starting your own company.

The Foundations of Management specialisation will give you a comprehensive introduction to the practice of management through the lens of four key disciplines: accounting, finance, marketing, and organizational behavior. In each course, you’ll analyze real business cases from these four perspectives. In the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply what you’ve learned to develop a holistic solution to a real-world business dilemma.

The Foundations of Management specialisation will provide you with the skill set needed to help achieve the next step in your career.
