Financial Management

Stonebridge Associated Colleges UK


Financial management is concerned with the decisions that a firm makes about investing in projects and with acquiring the finance for that investment and as such is only concerned with the future.

With a financial decision, the issue may not be whether it was right or wrong in predicting the future but whether an appropriate assessment and a reasoned argument were made in taking the initial decision. As we are dealing with uncertain future predictions, risk is a major factor to be taken into account. How likely is the prediction to happen?

This course will enable students with little knowledge of finance to lay the foundations for decision making in financial management.

Topics in the course include:

  • Introduction to Financial Management
  • Capital Investment Appraisal
  • Working Capital Management
  • Equity Valuation, Stock Market Data and Investment
  • Dividend Decision and Valuation of Corporate Equity
  • Cost of Capital, Corporate Investment and Market Valuation
  • Financial Policy and Capital Structure
  • Portfolio Decision and Risk Management


On completion of your course, you will receive two qualifications:

Financial Management Diploma issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges, entitling you to use the letters SAC Dip after your name.

ASET Level 4 Financial Management Award

This Course leads to an ASET Level 4 Award Certificate for successful learners. That means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework (NFQ) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (in which case GCSE's are at levels 1 and 2 and 4 Levels are at level 3).

The Award has been designed by a learning provider to meet specific learners' or employers' requirements and as such is not listed as a qualification on NQF. While the duration, content or assessment may vary from similar national qualifications, in accrediting the program at level 4, ASET attests that its learning outcomes are at an equivalent level to a level 4 national qualification.


After each lesson there will be a question paper, which needs to be completed and submitted to your personal tutor for marking. This method of continual assessment ensures that your personal tutor can consistently monitor your progress and provide you with assistance throughout the duration of the course.
