Corporate finance for Japanese executives is designed to help employees improve knowledge of corporate finance
while boosting English language skills. Our program is based upon the corporate finance principles your employees need to know for their personal success, and for the success of your organization.
The program can be conducted as a 10-week online program or as a two-day intensive classroom seminar.
Who is this program for?
Designed for Japanese employees to improve specialized language skills and knowledge of corporate finance. For example; future business leaders working in a global environment, department and line managers, and employees who manage business units or organizations.
The program helps employees develop a working knowledge of corporate finance principles in English. We will show how financial statements can be used to gain information on companies for use in M&A, competitive, and other forms of analysis. The instructor will guide participants through a series of interactive lectures, case studies and exercises.
