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. To gain competitive advantage, organizations must link finance and strategy across the entire enterprise. A solid understanding of finance, beyond the department/project level, enables technical managers to participate in strategic resource allocation and decision-making. The way in which an organization raises capital, invests capital, and effectively manages capital, is fundamental to successfully achieving organizational goals. This course will equip technical managers with the skills required to communicate and collaborate with the C-suite (CFO, COO, CEO) regarding “big picture” strategic financial planning and decision-making that creates value.
