BUNDLE I: CORPORATE FINANCE AND STRATEGY

Value based management is a key function of corporate leadership. In recent years, a significant emphasis has been put on determining the adequate strategies and value creating corporate actions. The importance of transparent and robust financial models also increased in regards to preparing and presenting investor information, and compliance with accounting principles (IFRS/US GAAP). Hence broadening one’s knowledge on company valuations, business strategy and financial modeling is crucial for executives working in finance or business management. This bundle will introduce students to the world of finance from a corporate perspective. Students will get an introduction to the corporate business structure, from raising capital to funding operations to value creation to risk management. Additionally, they will also be introduced to corporate strategic decision making and positioning.  Finally, students will also get an understanding of the dynamics of industry evolution and strategic problem solving through the most current applied frameworks.
