About the course

The course looks at transactions from the viewpoint of the company itself, debt financiers and shareholders – and highlights the negotiation and commercial issues that arise from the differences in perspective and objective.

THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU ANSWER THESE KEY QUESTIONS:

  • In what business areas should we direct our growth?
  • Should that growth be through organic investment or by acquisition?
  • What analytical processes will guide the implementation of individual components of the strategy?
  • Should the business units be controlled from the centre, or should management be delegated?
  • How should we manage exposures to such volatilities as commodities, interest and foreign exchange?
  • Should we fund the enterprise with aggressive levels of debt, or with conservatism?
  • Should we issue publicly traded instruments or err towards private placements?
  • How will we square conflicts between accounting impacts andm economic/cashflow/value objectives?
  • What performance measures will be prioritised in designing and implementing corporate strategy?

You’ll leave with a large volume of excel files and additional reading material on a wide range of corporate financing topics

What you will learn

Over five days, you'll explore every aspect of corporate finance. It's a very practical course with group discussions, breakout sessions and case studies and you are encouraged to try out all that you learn.

The case studies include valuation analysis, a financing structure that failed spectacularly and a strategy that went seriously wrong! You will also be involved in several hands-on modelling exercises.
