Managers meet a wide range of strategic financial problems in their organisations. This unit will interest those wanting to develop their knowledge of this area. It develops understanding of finance and related accounting problems that organisations face in setting strategy at the board level, and will enable students to feel at ease working with finance and accounting experts. Students will examine how finance and accounting interact, develop a grasp of the strategic implications of corporate financial theory, and learn how to tackle the main financial problems they are likely to encounter.
