Strategic Financial Management Programme For Executives

The financial management landscape has undergone profound changes in recent years, spurred by global economic forces, analytics and decision support systems, Fintech advancements, and the increasingly complex nature of strategic financial decision-making. The dynamism in the business environment has created enormous opportunities and simultaneously attenuated challenges for executives to be adaptable
to these dynamic forces while maintaining sound knowledge of theoretical and conceptual understanding. This requires an objective framework to analyze and evaluate the opportunities and risks.
This customized SFMe programme for executives provides the necessary tools and knowledge to understand the consequences of financial decisions in the increasingly competitive and dynamic business environment. This programme has a judicious mix of finance theories, financial analytics, and data-driven decision-making, a foundation of FinTech and business innovation, and an introduction to risk management framework, behavioral finance, and portfolio management. After completing the programme, executives are expected to develop a strategic financial management ability to integrate the financial approach into business decision-making. In doing so, they will ensure a sound economic basis for all kinds of strategic financial plans and decisions of their respective organization.
