  • CPC051 - Developing and Delivering an Effective Budget
    Budgeting is a core component of any organizational financial plan and outlook. In this course, students will learn how to create a working budget that can be applied to a project, department, or entire organization, clearly distinguishing between revenues and expenses to convey a logical bottom line.

In this course, students will learn how to create a working budget that can be applied to a project, department, or entire organization, clearly distinguishing between revenues and expenses to convey a logical bottom line. Additionally, students will learn how to deliver a proposed budget in an effective and meaningful way.
  • CPC053 - Financial Strategies and Risk Management
    Today’s organizations often require outside financial capital and risk management strategies for the increased global complexity we face today. This course will help students understand the different financing options available to organizations. These options include both equity and debt financing as well as public and private financing sources, which will enable students to make the most prudent financial choices for their organizations. Further, students will learn strategies for insuring and protecting their organization’s capital and cash flow from outside disruption.
  • CPC054 - Strategic Planning, Budgeting and Performance
    Strategic planning is more than just reviewing past performance and predicting future results. It is a calculated process of navigating an organization from where it is today to its goals of tomorrow, recognizing the challenges and opportunities that could arise along the way. Students will walk through this process in this course, as well as re-visit budgeting concepts in order to create a holistic and realistic strategic plan. In addition, students will learn fundamental principles of performance management in order to gauge the effectiveness of a strategic plan and make adjustments as necessary.
  • CPC055 - Governance and Ethical Financial Management
    Newspaper headlines and television stories have provided countless examples over the past decade of ethical failure, particularly in the area of financial management. This course is designed to provide students with a solid framework of ethical financial management skills in order for students to lead by example in this critical area and identify potential financial mismanagement in their organizations. Students will also engage in the fundamentals of organizational governance to better understand where the balance of control lies, as well as, how key positions and roles play an integrated part in upholding ethical financial standards.
  • CPC056 - Capital Markets and the Financial Landscape
    This final course in the certificate program provides a working knowledge of the global securities markets, both equity and debt, something every non-financial manager should be familiar with. It also examines the current global financial landscape, economic cycles, and some of the challenges and opportunities facing the global economy, both now and into the future. This provides students with a foundational understanding of these core concepts and how they apply specifically to their own organization.
