1. The financial department in the company's environment

Within the different areas of the company and under the supervision and direction of the Chief Executive Officer, the Finance Department is probably the one with the most transversal nature and whose decisions have the most relevant impact on the whole organisation. This is why this module details the main characteristics of a financial department, as well as the different types of business organisation.

Professor: Jesús Javier Reglero Sánchez, Partner at RS Corporate Finance.

2. Financing decisions

Depending on the type of company, the sector of activity and its geographical location, the sources of financing may be more or less diverse and the objective of the financial manager will be to find the best of them. For this reason, this module analyses all the alternatives and options that companies have for financing their activities.

Professor: Rafael Hurtado Coll, Chief Investment Officer (CIO) and Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at Allianz.

An important defining characteristic of today's business environment at the beginning of the 21st century is the need for internationalisation or globalisation. Every company must be able to develop its potential not only in its domestic market but also in the framework of an international global economy. Throughout this course, students will learn about topics such as the foreign exchange market, foreign trade, risk management and international taxation, among others.

Professor: Alberto Reglero Sánchez, Senior Manager KPMG Forensic (Dispute Advisory Services).

3. Investment decisions

Once the economic resources, obtained from the different sources of finance, are in the company, it has to invest them with the objective of creating value for the stakeholders. To this end, this module covers all areas of the financial department, since it is related to the use of funds raised by the company from fund providers, and deals with subjects such as the time value of money, investment valuation methodologies (NPV, IRR and Payback), investment typologies and stock market analysis (technical and fundamental), among others.

Professor: Martí Pachamé Barrera, Partner and Director of the Economic and Financial Department at CFM Consulting.

This subject has a transversal character being related to different modules, such as Mergers and Acquisitions, Sources of Financing or Investment Selection. In it, the main tools and methodologies related to finance are learnt. The main topics covered include value management and measurement, value creation, company valuation methodologies and financial reporting, among others.

Professor: Juan Fuertes Fernández Labastida, Administrative-Accounting Manager at Economía Digital Diario Online.

Cross-border mergers are frequent in an increasingly complex and globalised world. Thus, this module will analyse, from an international context, the area of corporate operations, as well as the reasons why companies carry out these corporate movements. Specifically, topics such as the types of corporate operations, as well as their advantages and disadvantages, the financial analysis of a corporate operation and the processes of buying and selling companies, mergers and restructurings, among others, will be covered.

Professor: Jesús Javier Reglero Sánchez, Partner at RS Corporate Finance.

4. Management decisions

The complexity of day-to-day business has combined with the speed and constant change that business actors have to undergo and deal with. This, combined with globalisation and the financial and economic crisis of recent years, has led to increased uncertainty in decision-making. Risk has increased in general and has become one of the strategic aspects considered in organisations. Thus, in this module we will study techniques to manage and limit these risks.

Professor: Pere Joaquín Brachfield Montaña, practising lawyer, member of the Barcelona Bar Association (ICAB).

Information is fundamental to decision-making. The importance of financial decisions reinforces the need to have reliable, flexible and efficient information systems in order to have access to it. The course will analyse aspects such as: (I) generating added value from the information available, (II) converting information into knowledge, (III) implementing an information system within a financial department.

Professor: Salvi Hernández Barjola, CEO at Sigma Consulting Asociados.

Professor: Rodrigo Yagüe Juárez, Associate at RS Corporate Finance.

Additionally, in each of the modules, synchronous sessions or 'webinars' are organised, where all participants are connected at the same time through an application, which allows the exchange of knowledge in 'real time'.
