Executive Education Courses in Finance
Of all the business topics covered in executive education, finance is perhaps one of the most popular. And it's no surprise, in that finance executives are always looking for new ways to get an edge, either by exploring new insights in finance or thinking about using new technology to make their lives easier.
Indeed, breakthroughs in subjects like Financial Technology (FinTech) and Behavioral Finance are great for business (and the bottom line), but in terms of management, may require a whole new set of skills, many of which finance executives may not have learned. This is one way where executive courses in finance can help: they can assist managers in leveraging cutting-edge insights in the world of finance.
Executive education courses in finance come in a variety of formats. The shortest may be a day long (or even less). Short courses like this can allow participants to quickly target specific finance skills they'd like to upgrade, or efficiently learn new insights in the field of finance. There are also longer courses, which may last a week or more, and can help delve more deeply into developing new finance skills. Also on offer at many business schools are modular programs (which break the learning up into modules, spread out over a certain amount of time), or even full-on degree options, such as an Executive Master in Finance.
For managers who plan to transition into the field of finance, an executive course in finance for non-financial managers might be appropriate.
See below for a complete list of executive courses in finance, from business schools all over the world.
