About the course

On completion of this distance learning course you will have the knowledge and skills needed to make the right decisions when it comes to directing growth, choosing funding and managing performance. Working step-by-step through the different components of Corporate Finance, this course will teach you to look at a company through the eyes of the individuals responsible for the company’s management - rather than the lenders or shareholders. You will consider:

  • In what areas should growth be directed?
  • What analytic processes will guide the implementation of individual components of the strategy?
  • How do we manage exposure to volatilities such as commodities, interest and foreign exchange?
  • Shall we fund the enterprise with aggressive levels of debt, or with conservatism?
  • How will we square conflicts between accounting impacts and economic/cashflow/value objectives
  • What performance measures will be prioritised in designing and implementing corporate strategy?

Certain themes will reappear throughout the course, including the role of free cash flow, volatility and the difference between price and value. Within every unit, different options are illustrated, giving you the perspective of everyone involved.

The distance learning format allows you to study some of the more complex concepts at a pace that is right for you. Course leader Richard Capps will provide numerous excel files that you will be able to use to your advantage at work.
