Corporate Financial Management (track 3): Corporate finance is a place where business strategy, processes, and information combine. This track gives participants the opportunity to specialise in corporate finance. It provides techniques and models to assist in financial decision-making and the insight to determine whether these decisions make sense in a strategic competitive context. This track is founded on the idea that learning is fruitful when a subject matter is applied in practical decision contexts.

The track is designed to prepare participants for professional qualifications, not least towards examinations as certified financial analysts.
