This course is based around the discipline and concepts of financial management. Financial management is all-encompassing and embraces both the asset and liability sides of an organisation. Although Financial Managers are at senior positions and on par with the CFO and Treasurer, they are not engaged in accounting functions nor that of auditing.

However, he/she is integrally involved in most aspects of deriving the net income. Responsibilities ranging from asset/ liability management, to capital structure, to working capital and identifying financing sources amongst a myriad of options and costs – some transparent, others hidden and some mingled – all fall under the role of the Financial Manager. Given its natural overlapping role, especially with treasury, vis-à-vis banking relationships and funding sources, cooperation becomes critical amongst key players such as the financial manager, CFO and treasurer to ensure that taking, for example, a derivative position, is agreed upon and documented as a financially sound position to take.

This course will help you grasp the main concepts of finance and the practical mechanics of its implementation in different market disciplines, such as banking, commercial, industry as well as SMEs. It will provide you with the necessary tools to make a sound financial decision – as in investments, acquisitions, divestitures, funding, and product architecture.
