short description:
The course is for anyone in need of business finance, especially, in small and medium sized enterprises. It covers the complete process of qualifying a business for institutional or private financing under the new rigorous conditions of "risk rating".
long description:
The course specifically addresses you, the owner or financial officer of a small or medium sized enterprise, or you, the prospective entrepreneur planning to set up a business. By the nature of your mission you are constantly confronted with the problem of finding adequate supplies of finance for your business.

The course is highly personalised. It takes you step by step through the process of qualifying your business for institutional financing in a globalised market environment in which rigorous "risk rating" has become the unavoidable entry test.

Through a sequence of practical assignments – the central means of instruction in this course - you acquire a thorough understanding of the concepts and international standards by which to ensure your access to loan or equity finance.

But the course not only acquaints you with those principles, it applies them, by your choice, to case material (generalised "standard course"), or to your own company or project (individualised "corporate course"), whereby the course assumes the character of professional counselling.

And what you take away from the course is not mere knowledge. The assignments are designed to create, module by module, a financial management "software" with all the tools you need for making your business attractive for private or institutional funders.

By the end of the course you will have acquired these assets:

• a currently updated financial controlling cockpit ,
• a dynamically adjusted financial planning system,
• a continuously reporting risk rating system in compliance with international standards, and
• routinely updated documentation for negotiating finance or reporting to lenders and investors.
