Georgetown University campus, Washington, D.C.



In three days, Demystifying Finance will provide the ultimate crash course in the basics of finance, accounting, budgeting, and financial analysis. Participants will learn principal terms and concepts as well as how to read a financial statement in depth.



Demystifying Finance is designed for non-financial professionals seeking to expand their effectiveness and performance. Executives, managers and other professionals in functional or general management roles can bolster their impact by strengthening their financial literacy and analytical skills. No prior financial knowledge or education is required. 


Strategic Purpose

Finance is the foundation of all enterprise. Competitive and dynamic organizations need their entire leadership teams – from executive vice presidents to line managers – to have a sound grasp of modern financial principles, strategies, results, and reporting to make well-informed decisions and understand risks and returns. This program will help organizations to strengthen their financial position by broadening the financial knowledge of their management groups.




Focusing on real-world, practical application, the program emphasizes action over theory and focuses on current issues, events, and best practices in finance. Sessions cover the basic areas of finance in a straightforward and accessible way. They combine classroom lecture and discussion, group work, and some pre-class preparatory reading.



Program Lead – Michael Cichello specializes in Finance, Corporate Valuation, Mergers & Aquisitions, and Financial Management. Professor Cichello is a faculty member of the McDonough School of Business, and he currently teaches Financial Accounting and Corporate Valuation in the online Masters of Science Finance program.


Program Fees and Registration

The program fee is $4,250. 

There is a 10% discount for NGOs, Government and multiple registrants from a single organization for the same program.
