The major offers an immersive and accelerated learning environment – one that inspires students to reflect and reemerge as professional financial analysts. Facilitated and moderated by experienced market practitioners, the specialization classes challenge the conventional knowledge and offer fresh insights into complicated business issues. As part of the specialization, students will be trained in cutting-edge techniques of portfolio and wealth management (including alternative investments), financial modeling, capital budgeting, and risk management. Kozminski University seeks to make the contents of the major in Corporate Finance consistent with the CFA Candidate’s Body of Knowledge (CBOK). The ultimate goal is to enable KU students to start passing CFA exams while studying at the University.
KPMG decided to establish a partnership with Kozminski University. Our goal is to share our expertise and practical knowledge in the area of deal advisory with students of the Corporate Finance track of one of the best accounting and finance programs in Poland. Our experts with many years of practical experience provide insights on capital market transactions, global and local trends as well as the ways to ensure the deals are done properly to create value to the shareholders. We demonstrate ways how to measure value and account for uncertainty in the ever changing market and regulatory environment. We also present how through sound valuation corporate governance can be improved and the overall trust in transactions increase. We strongly believe that only the combination of academic theory and practical experience can shape finance managers of the future who are able and willing to take the next steps in their professional careers.
In Santander, we strongly believe that the capital markets are created by people so the future of the Polish capital market depends on young generation entering the labour market. Being one of the most active investment banking advisor in Poland, we would like to share our practical expertise and experience in M&A and ECM fields with students. I have no doubts that Kozminski University is a great place to gain necessary background which will prepare future investment bankers to their professional careers. Myself included, as I am proud to be an MBA graduate at KU.
