About This Course:
Extensive changes are occurring in corporate finance today. Financial managers are becoming full business partners – participants at the strategy level. Along with basic financial analysis, you're expected to provide entrepreneurial business solutions for your organization. You need to successfully analyze investment decisions and finance options.
You need to understand corporate strategy. You need to understand the "New Finance"–global
competition, technological innovation, and transformation strategies.
By linking performance metrics with corporate strategy, Financial Tools to Drive Business
