Course Description

Efficiency in managing cash, investments or other financial assets plays a critical role in any organization. Not only does it help the company to generally stay afloat, but proper management can also be the key to a government that thrives and weathers abrupt fiscal challenges. This class explores treasury operations by introducing strategies to balance cash availability while maximizing asset returns. Download course flyer.
