Strategic Financial Management
Forget courses that only scratch the surface of financial tools and just show you how to read financial statements. In the Strategic Financial Management program, you’ll develop an in-depth ability to lead and drive financial value creation in your company. Learn to analyze financial data yourself, using a holistic perspective, and leverage it to make the best strategic financial and business decisions.
Strategic financial and business decisions grounded in financial data
We know from experience that traditional courses in finance often provide a superficial learning experience. The formal definitions of concepts are memorized and can be used to read other people’s reports, but they do not encourage independent financial reporting based on a holistic understanding of how everything is connected. That’s why this is not a traditional course – far from it.
Much has happened and many decisions have been made in your organization before the last line in your income statement tells you how the business performed. So if you want to build knowledge and sharpen your ability to understand and actively apply key financial interrelationships, get the most and best out of your assets, and calculate, plan and control returns in the business, then Strategic Financial Management is for you.
Through EFL’s impact instruction, in this course you will develop your ability to master financial relationships and make strategic decisions for financial value creation and, by extension, shift the competitiveness of your business into high gear. The course’s goal is to develop your skills beyond simply analyzing historical data. You can apply your own real-world challenges, theories, models and tools so you can analyze financial data on your own and leverage the analysis offensively and creatively in strategic financial and business decisions.
