The Mechanics of Corporate Finance – Online
DELIVERED BY DISTANCE LEARNING OVER 16 WEEKS
This intensive online course will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the different components of corporate finance.
Corporate Finance is all about looking at a company, not through the eyes of its lenders, nor through the eyes of its shareholders, but through the eyes of the individuals who are responsible for the company’s management. This course embraces the areas addressed by the following questions (among many others): In what business areas shall we direct our growth? Shall that growth be through organic investment or by acquisition? What analytical processes will guide the implementation of individual components of the strategy? Shall the business units be controlled from the centre, or shall management be delegated? How shall we manage exposures to such volatilities as commodities, interest and foreign exchange? Shall 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 and economic/cashflow/value objectives? What performance measures will be prioritised in designing and implementing corporate strategy?

HOW YOU WILL LEARN
Through distance learning you can enjoy the benefits of studying, whilst minimising disruption to your existing professional commitments. You can set the pace at which you learn; applying the knowledge, skills and expertise gained from the materials to your work straight away. There’s also the huge savings of cost and time by not having to travel to a training location.
There are two routes of study you can take: the university-accredited route and the standard non-accredited route. Approaching the topics in a modular format, the course will enable you to grasp the key concepts in a practical way and thus helping you build a firm platform on which to expand your knowledge.
You can study the units online, save them to your computer or print them out. You can also take advantage of the online forum to meet your fellow participants and share knowledge, ideas and information at any time. At the end of each unit there is a practical assessment that will allow you to benchmark your growth in knowledge and understanding and will also show you what a tangible ROI distance learning provides.
