Enhance your knowledge of international corporate finance:
Financial decisions such as Investments, Mergers and Acquisitions, Financing, Risk Management, Valuation and Payout Policy all have international dimensions. But in today’s constantly shifting global economy and turbulent business environment, such decisions are rendered more complex and challenging than ever before. In particular, global differences in regulation, taxation, exchange risk, political risk and governance quality all have an impact on the way financial decisions should be made. To succeed, and take their knowledge of corporate finance to the next level, finance professionals need a solid understanding of these international complexities.
Advanced International Corporate Finance programme will help you develop a strategic understanding of key financial decisions faced by organisations today.
- Risk management. Be better prepared to deal with international challenges in corporate finance, in particular political, governance and currency risks
- Refreshed skill set. Make better investment, financing and pay-out decisions in an international context
- Analytical examination of return and risk. Accurately measure the impact of your strategic decisions on shareholder value as well as on risk

IN HOUSE AND ONLINE TRAINING
While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
