What you’ll learn

Smart financial management decisions maximize shareholder and company value and limit risk. The role of the CFO and the company’s finance team is to optimize financial performance. They do this by looking for ways to fund investments, free up capital, and decrease costs. By understanding the nuts and bolts of the business and what drives the numbers, they also advise on which activities drive profitable growth. The Master of Finance degree is designed to give students this breadth of insight.
