Certification in corporate finance

bandeau - Certification en finance d'entreprise

 

Executives and managers need a clear understanding of the basic financial and accounting principles essential in running a business. Not only does this let them interpret financial reports and data about their organization and the market they operate in, but it also lets them exchange information in a more compelling way with colleagues, suppliers and clients, and make better-informed management decisions.

The goal of this program is to give business leaders who hail from a non-accounting background the opportunity to acquire the knowledge they need to develop a solid grasp of the concepts, processes and tools employed in corporate finance.

GOALS

  • Understand important accounting terms
  • Read and interpret financial statements
  • Use financial tools to make better management decisions
  • Appreciate the financial impacts of management decisions
  • Gain insight into the basics of budget management
  • Control costs more effectively
  • Assess prospective investment deals

IS THIS FOR YOU?

Managers, executives and professionals looking to develop a firmer understanding of corporate finance to empower their decision-making. Marketing, operations and HR executives, CEOs of small and medium-size enterprises, lawyers, consultants, corporate directors, etc.
