Generate maximum return

Effective leaders make investment decisions that allocate limited capital resources to achieve organizational goals and minimize risk. Great leaders stand out not because they have access to particularly rich information, but because they seek the most useful information and accurately evaluate potential risk and return.

Leaders must be proficient in capital budgeting to ensure that capital resources are strategically implemented to generate maximum return. This course aims to equip business leaders with the terminology, skillset, and the strategic mindset required to navigate a complex business environment, evaluate competing investment options, execute budgeting decisions that achieve goals, and effectively communicate their decisions and impact.

The prerequisite for this course is Finance for the Non-Financial Manager.

Every course includes:

  • Industry-leading faculty
  • Collaborative learning
  • Research-driven results
  • Lifelong connections
