A Masterclass in Corporate Finance


2 - 6 November 2020

Virtual Classroom

The course looks at transactions from the viewpoint of the managers of the companies company themselves, and highlights the negotiation and commercial issues in dealings with debt financiers and shareholders that arise from the differences in perspective and objective.


  • In what business areas should the company direct its growth?
  • Should that growth be through organic investment or by acquisition?
  • What analytical processes will guide the implementation of individual components of the strategy?
  • Should the business units be controlled from the centre, or should management be delegated?
  • How should the company manage exposures to such volatilities as commodity exposures, and exposures to interest rates and foreign exchange?
  • Should the enterprise be funded with aggressive levels of debt, or with conservatism?
  • Should the company issue publicly traded instruments or err towards private placements?
  • How will the company square conflicts between accounting impacts and economic / cashflow / value objectives?
  • What performance measures should the company prioritise when designing and implementing corporate strategy?

Over five days, you'll explore every aspect of corporate finance. It's a very practical course with group discussions, breakout sessions and case studies and you are encouraged to try out all that you learn.
