About the course
What is appropriate financing? What are the necessary financial tools and techniques? How are they implemented? This essential and exciting seminar answers your questions, bringing to life theoretical principles using contemporary practical examples. Following the global financial crisis of 2008 and the continuing downward pressure on oil prices, excellence in financial management and use of the most appropriate financing (including Islamic finance) has become a number one priority for all organisations to ensure their survival and future prosperity.
The Oxford seminar is presented in a very hands-on way to suit individuals with varying levels of financial knowledge and experience. The Instructor’s own commercial career experiences and many other real-world business scenarios are shared throughout this stimulating seminar to provide a thorough training in the subjects covered, and illustrate and reinforce the practical application of best practice.
