In these changing times, Financial Acumen may also be beneficial to financial executives who want to strengthen their understanding of underlying corporate finance strategies
and to past participants of Leadership Programs covering General Management, Leadership and Strategy.
Overview: All senior
executives, regardless of their functional domain, need a mastery of
basic financial concepts.
This program is designed to deliver, in a very hands-on way, the financial frameworks, theories, and tools needed to navigate an increasingly competitive global market in the midst of a global recession. The goals of this program are to help senior executives, perhaps with limited knowledge of finance, learn to analyze and interpret financial statements, to understand how their actions and decisions affect financial performance, and to become more confident in their financial skills.
After completing this program, executives should be better equipped to communicate across functional domains; to make important strategic and investment decisions using financial metrics and value creation as critical inputs; to drive bottom-line profitability; and to assume senior leadership positions with a broader and more complete tool kit.
There will be two cases and two lectures on most days and is split into three “modules”.
Module 1: Analysis and Assessment of Performance
Financial Ratio analysis, cash flow vs. operating profits, managing working capital
Module 2: Valuation and Investment Analysis
Discounting, Present Value, Forecasting, Multiples
Linking Strategy and Finance, Capital Budgeting, IPOs
Module 3: Implementation and Execution
Managing Growth, Restructuring, Management Control, Compensation
Lectures will cover many topics including Valuation Analysis, Capital Structure, Value Drivers, and Restructuring Assets.
There will be one Australian case (Slater & Gordon) and one with some Australian connection (Scott Paper and Al Dunlap). Other cases are shown in the attached timetable.
