Enhance your knowledge of international corporate finance
Financial decisions such as Investments, Mergers and Acquisitions, Financing, Risk Management, Valuation and Payout Policy all have international dimensions. But in today’s constantly shifting global economy and turbulent business environment, such decisions are rendered more complex and challenging than ever before. In particular, global differences in regulation, taxation, exchange risk, political risk and governance quality all have an impact on the way financial decisions should be made. To succeed, and take their knowledge of corporate finance to the next level, finance professionals need a solid understanding of these international complexities.
The INSEAD Advanced International Corporate Finance programme will help you develop a strategic understanding of key financial decisions faced by organisations today by putting them into an international context. The programme will challenge existing frameworks and techniques and will help you to think beyond your national or regional context by studying advanced international case studies developed and written by INSEAD faculty.
INSEAD’s finance professors, who are responsible for designing and delivering the programme, are among the most highly ranked in the world for their research. And your peers in the INSEAD classroom will come from leading international companies. Together, they will challenge your preconceptions, broaden your global outlook and help take your performance to new levels.
