Managing Corporate & Islamic Finance and Corporate Governance
Managing corporate finance is broadly concerned with the effective acquisition and use of financial resources in creating corporate value, and its translation into shareholder value. Following the global financial crisis of 2008 and the continuing downward pressure on oil prices, excellence in financial management has become even more a number one priority for all organisations to ensure their survival and future prosperity.
Use of the most appropriate financing and the techniques necessary to achieve strategic financial objectives now increasingly includes Islamic finance, the fastest growing element in the finance sector.
Growing exponentially with an annual average growth rate of 17% between 2009 and 2014, Islamic finance was estimated to have a global worth of over US$2,000bn in 2014.
