Course Description

You would have heard a lot about the term “Corporate Finance”, if you belong to the finance domain.

This online CPE course will take a practical approach to considering how finance theory is applied in the business world. The continuing professional education course covers many of the key principles that embody corporate finance and gives participants a comprehensive appreciation of the finance discipline. 

The corporate finance principles work as a guideline for the corporate to ensure better application of finance. This helps to ensure the smooth business operation and also to maximize the return of the stockholders. The task of corporate finance is mainly related to financing, investment, and dividend payment. And a better and safe financial decision is followed by the core principles of corporate finance. Hence, the study of corporate finance provides answers to the following questions:

  • How should a business acquire its financial resources — either through equity or debt?
  • How should the business allocate its scarce financial resources among different projects/investments in order to optimize its returns?
  • What should a business do with the profits it earned? Should it retain them for future use or pay out to the owner in the form of a dividend?

Whether you are aspiring for a career in finance or looking to round out your appreciation of the financial concepts, this CPE course is designed to cover off such topics as financial analysis, forecasting, present value, future value, rate of return, use of debt leverage, and risk management, including derivative instruments.
