Primarily, the Program is designed for management professionals whose everyday business duties are not connected to advanced financial analysis or investment decision making (front office), but whose role requires a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts of corporate finance as well as a mastery of the most frequently utilized financial decision making tools.

The aim of the participants should be to deepen their knowledge of the general context of corporate finance, make acquaintance with the new financial problematic of the corporate world, train the most frequently used techniques of data analysis and presentation. In general, the program will benefit everyone dealing with operational and tactical decision making on everyday basis.
