Capsule Statement

     The Finance Manager plays an important part in the operation of the firm to understand
     why this is so, we must look closely at the role of finance function within the firm, the key
     functions of the finance manager, and his overall goal. As the organization grows attention
     is given to the evaluation of the firm's financial position and the acquisition of short term
     financing. As the firms approach a large scale, the finance function grows to include
     decision with respect of the acquisition of fixed assets, obtaining funds to finance the
     operation, and the distribution of corporate earning to shareholders. His three primary
     functions are (1) the analysis of financial data (2) the determining of the firm's asset
     structure, and (3) determining of its financial structure. Therefore, we would be putting
     more emphasis on Financial Analysis and planning, management of working capital and
     short term financing, forecasting and budgeting, sources and uses of capital and financial
     consideration in financial decision making.

Learning Objectives
