The course advances the professionalism of engineers and engineering-managers/owners through the language of finance and accounting. Financial mathematical tools are introduced or re-introduced into the engineer's project planning and budgeting analysis so that the PE can interact with other professions including senior and executive management and stakeholders of the operations.

Participants will learn how to use financial analytical tools for the decision-making process specifically applied to: project evaluation and project management, costing, contract negotiations, employee evaluation, revenue, profit and cash production, valuation of assets including buying and selling professional engineering practices. In addition, participants will also learn how others, namely CFO‚ utilize financial tools in their analytical evaluations, including times when such tools are abused.

Target participants are those PE managers needing a better background in the financial budgeting process, in strategic and capital budgeting and in executive managerial interactions.
