Programme overview

Acquire the toolkit needed to succeed as a finance professional

Finance professionals face increasingly complex tasks in today's fast-paced business environment. To be successful, they need to master a wide range of corporate finance tools and understand how to use them.

The Corporate Finance Modular Programme enables you to acquire these tools in three self-contained modules, set six to eight weeks apart to give you ample time to absorb the material.

Financial Accounting and Analysis (module 1) explains how to read and interpret financial statements

Corporate Finance and Valuation (module 2) looks at valuation techniques and their applications

Corporate Financing and Risk Management Policy (module 3) concentrates on the use of financial instruments to fund businesses and manage risk.


Module 1: Financial Accounting and Analysis
In this module, you learn to assess the performance of a company by undertaking a careful analysis of its financial statements.

Module 2: Corporate Finance and Valuation
This section of the Corporate Finance Modular Programme equips you with the modern valuation tools required to correctly appraise financial decisions and evaluate companies.

Module 3: Corporate Financing and Risk Management Policy
Businesses have access to an ever richer set of alternatives to fund their activities. In addition, they rely increasingly on derivatives markets to hedge multiple sources of risk. This module introduces the main instruments available to modern businesses. It also explores how to value them and how to use them to make sound financial decisions.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of capital markets, corporate financing and the valuation of corporate liabilities such as bonds, options and equity. You will then examine hedging and the management of risk as well as important areas of real options, dividend policy, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, financial distress, the security issuance process, and long-term financial planning.
