Corporate Finance for Technical Managers (E M 596)
It is critical for engineering and technology managers to understand the “big picture”, and this requires understanding corporate finance. Technical managers must grasp the linkage between engineering, finance, and strategy, in order to lead organizations to achieve goals. A solid understanding of finance, beyond the department/project level, enables technical managers to contribute to strategic resource allocation and high-level corporate decision-making. Corporate Finance for Technical Managers covers essential corporate finance topics, including raising capital, investing in new ventures, and managing financial risks. Ultimately, the course will equip current and future technical managers with the skills required to communicate and collaborate with the C-suite (CFO, COO, CEO) regarding strategic financial planning and decision-making that creates corporate value.
