Introduction to International Financial Management

The economic world, post autumn 2008, has radically changed. Many people were unaware of the impending economic instability and even those “in the know” were making elementary mistakes, and were taking far greater risks than would normally be the case. If you want a much sounder understanding of International Finance, then this course provides the key building blocks upon which to construct that knowledge.

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

For those with little or no formal training in Finance, this highly interactive 2-day programme concentrates on the principles, tools and techniques of international financial management. Supported by analysis, practical exercises, and case studies this course will give you the understanding and ability to discuss and present the key aspects of international finance. You will also have a much better understanding of the impact your decisions have upon your business.
