Course Overview

A forward-looking CFO / senior finance executive in today’s rapidly changing world is the cornerstone not only for a company’s success but an enabler to get the job done, attract top talent and be positioned for financial support with either debt or equity to hit these targets.

This four-day intensive program is developed with this objective in mind to cover a wide range of strategic models with engaging and interactive case studies for senior finance professionals to have a greater strategic impact on their company’s corporate strategy.

The seasoned COF / senior finance executive, coupled with the strategic execution, requires fluency in the formation and assessment of financial assessment and appraisal models, including the risk trade-off and cost-benefit analysis of considering debt in the funding mix.

As the finance role moves to align cost to value and more as value-enhancing, this course will make sure CFO and seasoned finance professionals continue to think outside of the box by challenging the status quo with the latest trends in this sector from global peers.
