CBA Certified Budget Analyst

Advanced Tools in Budgeting, Forecasting & Reporting

2 alternative locations available

Course Overview

This program has been designed to provide the participants with a broad view and understanding of financial budgeting for enterprises. A discussion of financial statements is a must when considering the creation or analysis of financial budgets. Also, an understanding of how costs behave and how they can be derived and allocated to the various aspects of the business units is also an important part of preparing budgets.

We will be discussing various budgeting methods that have been used and are still in use today in various enterprises. We will also be discussing the methods we can use to assess whether a budget is appropriate and should be approved, and in some cases, whether a project should be undertaken at all.

And finally, no discussion about budgets can be complete without assessing how well a company or sub-unit has actually performed in relation to their budget, and understanding why there are any differences, which there will usually always be.
