G4S Government Solutions, Inc., has selected eCornell to deliver focused financial management training for its key business leaders. G4S GS’s primary goal is to increase financial performance and advance the strategic business acumen among the company’s leadership at all levels.
Because the company manages a multitude of large-scale, long-term contracts with the U.S. government, G4S GS determined it required more rigorous financial systems in place for reporting on and executing its business strategy. In addition, managing educational programs for leaders in a globally dispersed workforce of more than 7,000 employees was an ongoing challenge. With eCornell, G4S GS has found a cost-effective way to address both needs through a scalable online learning platform. The first group of leaders from G4S GS will begin the financial management training program this summer.
Participants in the 6-course financial management series will learn to interpret and generate financial reports, assess risk and return in capital-budgeting decisions, and develop operational and financial strategies. All of the online courses in the Financial Management Certificate program are authored by faculty at Cornell University.
