Planning is the key to an organisation achieving its goals. However, translating high-level plans into realistic and workable budgets can be challenging.

"Being that OCA is a completely online campus, I looked for every reason not to do my course through them. I looked at every AAA professional provider and the people teaching the courses. In the end, of all the providers, I went with the one I least expected to. The service is beyond what any big brand campus gives you, and everything is set out so well. Huge ups to OCA for completely turning me around! I would recommend studying through OCA to anyone who wants a real advantage. Thank you!" - Jaqui

This financial planning course introduces the main concepts involved in the planning, implementation and monitoring of business budgets, and provides insight into important aspects of managing team budgets and financial plans including accurate reporting, monitoring and financial performance review.
