International Finance - Postgraduate Studies – EY Academy of Business

International Finance – Postgraduate Studies

This is a unique and ambitious program offered jointly by SGH and EY Academy of Business. This program is aimed at professionals who do not necessarily work in finance, but for whom finance is essential to their career.

The skills developed will not be limited to traditional techniques and tools, but will also include more modern and sophisticated skills in areas such as lean accounting, risk management, performance management, business process management etc. These will help candidates develop their personal development in business and provide them with a major role in strategic financial decision-making processes in the organization.

The most important points of the program

  • Applying the Finance 4.0 concept, which combines finance with strategies and being a business partner for the organization and being a value creator
  • Cooperation in groups composed of participants from different countries bringing diverse experiences and knowledge
  • World-class materials, real-life case studies and professionally qualified and experienced trainers conducting lectures and workshops
  • Additional advantages: practicing English in business; learning to create meaningful conversations, apply tools and techniques from everyday life; learning assertiveness, self-confidence, persuasion and how to best use them in financial transactions

Candidates will receive expert, internationally recognized education and training from some of the best academics  and practitioners in finance with local and international experience, knowledge and skills.

All topics will be covered from zero to advanced level at a fast pace.

One of the important goals of this course is to improve your language skills in Business English.

Course methodology

The courses are intensive , divided into modules and will include a combination of lectures, workshops, case studies, self-study and group work. Analyzing real-world examples will allow students to practically apply the concepts taught.

To pass exams (80% of the overall grade) and complete case studies in groups (20% of the overall grade), you will need to spend some time studying at home.

The materials are specially designed for self-study. Students have constant access to their professors and can ask them for advice or feedback on a completed task.

See an example of materials:  Strategic Planning and Budgeting or IFRS .

Main areas covered by the study program:

  • Financial reporting and analysis based on IFRS compared to US GAAP
  • Financial strategies, valuations, risk management, mergers and acquisitions
  • Strategic planning, monitoring and controlling

All classes are conducted in English.

More information can be found in the PDF brochure and on the university website.

Benefits of online classes:

  • “Class effect” so that everyone knows who the other participants are, the ability to communicate with the host and participants via chat;
  • Screen sharing so participants can view and interact with the trainer’s screen in real time;
  • Possibility of voice communication in small groups;
  • “Meeting rooms” , so that the class can be divided into groups for interaction in which case studies will be solved;
  • Materials to download in one place, for printing;
  • Surveys, multiple-choice and open-ended questions during training: answers are presented in a real-time format (under the trainer’s control);
  • All our trainers have many years of experience in conducting online training.
