Sound financial management is an integral component of business strategy. Designing a consistent, cohesive corporate investment and finance strategy can create and sustain a viable competitive edge. Unfortunately, many senior managers are unaware of the linkages between strategic and financial management and do not realize that a strategic vision must be accompanied by the understanding of how it will generate financial value.

The program on Advanced Corporate Finance: Crafting Strategies to Create Shareholder Value helps build an understanding of the interactions between a firm’s investment decisions, the business and operational strategies. Through case-studies and interactive discussions, participants gain exposure on how to optimize and integrate investment and financing decisions to maximize shareholder value. The program is designed so that participants develop a deeper understanding in applying the principles and frameworks of finance and gain greater confidence in making strategic financial decisions.




Over the course of the program, participants will: 

  • Explore various aspects of capital budgeting and creation of value
  • Unravel the complexities of financing decisions and tactics & procedures in financial markets
  • Measure the impact of financing strategies on firm’s cost of capital
  • Learn about company valuation - assessing worth of a business
  • Gain exposure to financial implications in mergers, acquisitions and restructuring
  • Develop insights on global finance


Senior business executives such as CEOs, CFOs, Directors and General Managers who make or are part of the teams that make financial decisions for their companies.  Some of these senior executive may not have formal finance background but because of their roles and responsibilities have to deal with such critical issues and are ideal candidates for this course. Such participants should be familiar with the basic finance and accounting concepts. 

Please note this is not “Finance for Non-Financial Managers” program, nor is it an introductory finance course. The program content is primarily directed towards corporate finance and is therefore not suitable for all types of organizations.
