Top Summer Courses in Finance

Summer courses are a popular option for many students who want to gain additional skills or speed up the learning process. These classes usually take place when most people are on a break from the normal school year. There are many different summer courses available.

What is a Summer Course in Finance?  This is a study program available to students who are interested in gaining additional business and mathematical skills for the workplace. There are courses available to meet the needs of varying educational levels. Some programs have admissions criteria. During the course, it is common for students to learn financial topics such as mathematics, investments, economics, and accounting. Sometimes, students have the option to complete their classwork online. Other times, on campus learning is required.

There are several unique benefits to participating in a summer course. In addition to the knowledge that you gain, you will probably enjoy smaller classes. Many people like to study during the summer because it is a less stressful time of year.

The cost of a Summer Course in Finance varies depending on the program you choose and the school you want to attend. The cost is usually well worth the investment. If you need more information about tuition and other fees, try contacting the admission’s office at the school you are interested in attending.

When you complete your summer course, you can continue taking finance courses or apply for financial related jobs. Some of the skills you acquired during the summer might help you land a job. However, you might need to work towards a degree before you enter the workplace. Most people with finance backgrounds work as analysts, portfolio managers, brokers, or accountants. There are many companies around the world in need of people with financial backgrounds.

If you are interested in taking a course during the summer, then it is important to find the right one for you. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Programme Description

This course introduces students to the role of finance in the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. Mitigating and adapting to climate change while simultaneously realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires the deployment of large amounts of capital – capital which isn’t currently provided in sufficient amounts. Moreover, climate change poses a significant risk to economies and financial systems alike. At the same time, there are substantial opportunities in financing the green transformation and in aligning investments and finance with environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.

The course enables students to understand and apply key concepts in climate and sustainable finance, the role of climate and other environmental risks in creating potential financial risks in banking and capital markets, and the role of financial actors in driving a global transition and aligning capital markets with climate and sustainability goals....

Programme Description

This course aims to provide participants with the theoretical knowledge and critical tools for understanding the rationale for, and the impact of, public financial management policies on the economy in the context of austerity.

Since the 2008-9 financial crises, many countries of the world sought to adapt and deliver austerity measures in an effort to preserve the sustainability of public finances – with widely varying degrees of success. Followed by equally diverse fiscal policies that aimed to reinvigorate economic growth, the experience of the last decade offers powerful lessons as to the effectiveness of different approaches. Issues that will be discussed include the design of effective and sustainable public financial management systems, management of the ‘fiscal space’ of governments, development of public financial management capacity, the interplay with politics, and the role that international organisations like the IMF have in public financial management policies....
