The role of finance is becoming increasingly complex and dynamic. The 21-day Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance will give you academic knowledge to underpin your financial expertise.

Then you’ll make the leap and apply everything you’ve learned to a challenge or opportunity in your own organisation.
Build your knowledge and understanding in two broad phases. In the first, you dive deep into the fundamentals of corporate finance. Across four core modules. Across four core modules, you learn how to make finance decisions, you develop finance strategies and work on capital budgeting and company valuation.
You get to live everything you learn in a business opportunity or challenge in your own organisation.

Choose, for example, the Mergers & Acquisition Path, to enhance your understanding of Creating Value through M&A and Venture Capital and Private Equity.

Founder and Managing Director at Close the Gap
What really fascinated me about Vlerick's approach was the in-company project that we had to develop. It meant that I could use my training time to write my own business plan and test it against reality. I regard the good rating I got for my final project as a quality label. It also gave me the confidence to really go for my plans.

Each module of the Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance exceeded my expectations. The balance provided between theory and practice, and between corporate finance and strategic business considerations, is excellent. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work for top companies in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sectors, and I’ve studied at a variety of schools. I know what the standards are and what good companies expect. This programme and faculty are world-class.

This Executive Master Class has allowed me to focus on uncommon issues and to look at very interesting subjects from a perspective that’s different from my usual one – even with my broad CFO experience. I especially appreciated the frequent interactions with peers, trying to come up with extraordinary solutions to challenging problems. The case studies have also proven to be extremely useful in my professional setting. Top programme!
