If you're looking for ways to expose your executives to sophisticated financial strategies, consider some upcoming minicourses and seminars offered by the American Management Association (AMA) in cities across the United States. The 1993 schedule is exhaustive and occasionally excessive. (One $970 course, for example, promises to help executives improve their proofreading skills.) But there are useful classes for financial professionals, especially newly promoted controllers, who might benefit from intensive exposure to state-of-the-art cash forecasting, budgeting, and financial-reporting systems (taught in Seminar 1206QGF, The Controller's Job in Today's Environment). More experienced financial managers might pick up some effective strategies in advanced classes on proven collection techniques (1258QGF). To request a complete schedule, call the AMA at 518-891-0065.
