"academic grounding and a hands-on practical understanding of many of the challenges and day-to-day issues we face as financial directors. This is a new programme, but it is so excellently prepared. The topics we discuss have direct relevance to our work and the teaching is enriched by input from industry-experts who are on hand to talk through real-world issues. I also really appreciated the diversity within my cohort – professionals from a range of backgrounds facing the same challenges as I do. I have left the programme having gained a breadth of vision in terms of tackling problems, and with the frameworks, tools and confidence to try new approaches."

"I chose The Finance Function as a Business Partner programme because it aligned well with what we want to do within my organisation in terms of finance as a strong advisory partner within the company. In this sense it was an excellent fit. It’s a short and intensive learning experience – you cover a lot of ground in two immersive days. For me a real highlight was our discussions and analysis of metric models for decision-making because of the strong focus on actionable outcomes. In finance, we sometimes speak a different language to the rest of the business, so something that was really prioritised here was the need to translate models into clear messages. I also particularly appreciated the strategy mapping element, which was a good balance between the theoretical and the practical. I feel the that programme has provided the reassurance that in my organisation we’re on the right track, while at the same time giving me the insights and the confidence to try new techniques and approaches."

  1. Belgian acquisitions market in lockdown due to Covid-19

    The Belgian mergers and acquisitions market experienced a good and stable year in 2019. However, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, merger and acquisition activities are expected to decline by more than 30% in 2020. In addition, 60% of Belgian experts also expect a price drop of more than 10%. Liquidity problems in many companies could also put buyers in a strong bargaining position. Finally, the expected impact of an acquisition on future employment appears to be positive. These are the main conclusions of the seventh edition of the M&A Monitor, an annual survey of around 110 Belgian merger and acquisition specialists.
  2. Can you attract resources before you’ve proved your worth? Yes, you can!

    Start-ups and young businesses aiming for growth need resources - funding, staff, material, customers and so on. But why would anyone provide resources to a small business that has nothing concrete to show for it yet? How can you convince others if you haven’t yet proved your worth? A study by Professor Sophie Manigart and her colleagues show that what are known as ‘soft signals’ can be very useful in this situation.
