Learn the fundamentals of finance and accounting

Course Overview

This program provides attendees with an understanding of financial operations within the corporate environment. Participants will learn the value-add techniques used by finance managers to apply across all areas of the firm building more effective decision-making and enhancing enterprise value. The program also covers corporate valuation methodologies and the differences between equity and enterprise values.

This program focuses on understanding these valuation methods; their uses and pitfalls, as well as circumstances where each approach should be used, and which inputs have the largest impact on the output.
