Mastery of Management Graduate Diploma on

Business Finance & Investment

An excellent, detailed in-depth introduction to finance and investment decision making

The Program focuses on the theory and practice of business finance.  It covers the major theories of financial decision making and assesses their practical usefulness, and relates financial and decision-making theory to what happens in actual practice - real-life application.  Where theory and actual financial practice do not match, the reasons why are explained.  The Program covers the business finance environment and provides a very useful framework for financial decision making.  The Program deals in depth with investment decisions: methods and techniques for assessing different investment opportunities, practical aspects of value to financial and other managers/personnel/directors, risk and other relevant issues.
