Course Description

Facility managers manage and oversee high-value assets that represent significant financial investment in technology, buildings, structures, interiors, exteriors and grounds.  Since facility managers are typically responsible for the oversight, operation and maintenance of the buildings and grounds, as well as oversight of various service contracts, understanding the basics of finance and business is critical.
