Introduction

It is crucial that today's business professionals understand the flow of financial resources. Such an understanding is needed daily; whether it is used to anticipate trends, evaluate company performance or obtain funding. People from non-financial backgrounds are often called upon to make decisions based on modern financial controls, and they must have the know-how to navigate the financial systems that have a significant impact on their professional responsibilities.

The 5-Day MBA in Finance is developed to provide business professionals with a deeper understanding of corporate finance as practiced by today's most powerful companies. Designed specifically for non-financial personnel, this intensive seminar approaches the subject of finance as it relates to the corporation as a whole.

The highlights of the course include:

  • Extensive and deep coverage of the subject area
  • Real world approach to the discipline
  • Numerous examples based around market data

  • What is the exact nature and scope of the issue to be analyzed?
  • What products are available to manage risk?
  • Why is correlation so important in managing risk?
  • Which specific variables, relationships, and trends are likely to be helpful in analyzing an annual report?
