Finance is widely recognized as the language of business – yet supply chain managers have not fully learned how to communicate the impact of their function in financial terms. This workshop will show how supply chain actions affect the income statement and balance sheet – two key financial statements – and how supply chain managers can explain their decisions in the language of finance. The workshop will include exercises that challenge the participants to make critical investments in working capital, focusing on four core supply chain elements:  inventory, capital operating equipment, payables and receivables.

The MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) invites you to attend its industry-leading executive education program Supply Chain Financial Analysis
