Learn critical financial fundamentals and be able to more confidently communicate with financial practitioners, understand how to analyze and evaluate financial decisions, and contribute more to the creation of shareholder value.


Creating and maintaining shareholder wealth is a fundamental consideration in today's complex and fast-paced business climate. In order to produce shareholder value, the contemporary corporation must stress the strategic importance of project selection, financing, and the use of cash and other resources.
