Course overview:

Why is debt management important? When it comes to raising finance, a company has several sources for the acquisition of funds. These sources can be broadly categorized into debt and equity. Equity share and preference share issues are a popular way of raising funds through selling shares of the company to the general public and institutional investors.

Knowledge about debt management will guide the managers to achieve optimal capital structure and develop an inclusive debt policy. It becomes crucial to do so otherwise it can negatively hamper the firm’s reputation and credit rating which in turn affects its ability to avail future credit.

This course on Debt Management aims to manoeuvre its participants towards dealing with practical debt issues efficiently. The course focuses on various nuances of debt and credit management within the organization.

It deals with techniques of how debt service capacity can be evaluated, capital gearing effects, analysis and handling of credit risk, debt reduction strategies, etc. In recent times many public sector enterprises have come under observation for being debt-ridden.

Conscious efforts are required to extract them out of debt traps. In such light, it becomes even more important to grasp a deeper understanding of the subject.

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.
