Course overview

Every business must deal with risk, from tiny employee errors to big strategic mistakes. But financial risk can lead to a big dent in profits and potentially sink the company. After all, businesses are supposed to make money, not lose it. Successful businesses manage financial risk effectively by putting controls in place.

Financial controls reduce risk by preventing or detecting problems. They can make companies more profitable by limiting financial losses due to error, fraud, or ineffective processes. When you have a greater oversight of the way money is moving around a business, it’s easier to take corrective action.
