We are pleased to once again offer this course starting Monday, 18 July 2022.

Overview of the Course

The course involves approximately one hour per day of study over four and a half months; comprising online self-study, a weekly online Zoom session and two half day workshops.

You will learn to use advanced financial tools to identify and critically analyse financial opportunities and risks in organisations to support strategic decision-making and to create value for your organisation.

This course will have broad appeal, including appeal to people who may not have an undergraduate degree but have significant industry experience. An undergraduate degree is not necessary if participants have significant work experience (this does not need to be in finance).

Following completion you will be able to:

  • Apply advanced financial modelling techniques to measure and critically evaluate opportunity and risk in an organization.
  • Critically evaluate the risk management and treasury control functions of an organisation.
  • Analyse strategic investment and financing decisions for an organisation that can preserve and enhance shareholder value.




Course Structure

The course comprises seven modules.

Time Commitment

The course is part-time.

The course will commence on 18 July 2022 and end on 2 December 2022.

Delivery will be a combination of online self-study, a weekly online session (timing to suit participants) and two half day workshops (mid-September and mid-November).

Overall, participants will need to commit 7-10 hours per week, with a total commitment of approximately 150 hours (including self-study, Zoom sessions, workshops and assessment preparation).

Location of Workshops

The workshops will take place at a time and location to suit course participants. It is likely we will hold workshops at each of our campuses, depending on enrolment.

Support for Participants

It is likely many participants will not have studied formally for some time. Full learner support (including library access) will be provided, both on-campus and remote. A self-study online support module is available before and during enrolment to refresh the fundamental principles and concepts used in finance, economics, accounting, quantitative analysis and academic enquiry.
