Objectifs pédagogiques

“No matter what your role in an organization, an understanding of why and how financial decisions are made is essential” J. Berk, Peter De Marzo (Corporate Finance, Pearson Education, Second Edition).
Any decision in a firm has a financial impact: recruiting, investing, producing, selling… Any manager, whatever its organization (for or non-profit), has thus to make financial decisions with constraint resources so as to meet the requirements of the stakeholders (shareholders, clients, staff, suppliers, bankers…).
Finance is a technical subject, but, finance is more about judgment than technique. To make wise financial decisions, managers must thus demonstrate their ability to master 5 areas of competences, which are the 5 objectives of the course.
Course objectives
1. Analyze the financial situation of the firm in its environment;
2. Value the investment opportunities and the firm;
3. Allocate efficiently the resources of the firm;
4. Develop, pilot and control financial resources;
5. Communicate and report about the financial situation towards stakeholders.
