International School of Corporate Finance
By: Euromoney Financial Training
Jul 07 - 11 Jul, 2014
The school provides comprehensive coverage of all the key issues and challenges in corporate finance in ten modules covered over five days. All key areas of corporate finance theory are covered together with their practical application in such areas as project appraisal, M&A, buy-outs, private equity, corporate restructuring and value based management.
When putting together any corporate finance deal, the potential creation of value is a key consideration. Corporate finance techniques and structures offer many companies the opportunity for value creation, but problems occur when they are either not fully understood or the wrong strategy is implemented. The development of a sound theoretical and practical understanding of corporate finance is a key feature of the school, with financial economics and a focus upon value being key themes throughout. Upon return to your organisation you should be fully prepared to put your learning into practice.
