Course Description

Course Profile
Post-graduate studies in International Finance are an intensive and ambitious programme offered jointly by SGH Warsaw School of Economics and the EY Academy of Business. This is a unique programme for business professionals.
The entire programme is practical: short cases will be used to enable students to view the practical application of the concepts taught. This programme is for ambitious professionals at all levels with or without previous academic education in finance, but who require professional and practical skills in finance. A great number of professionals in both the private and public sectors who possess excellent technical skills in various areas (Accounting, Marketing, HR, Sales, IT, Banking, Administration, etc.) find that a lack of financial expertise is preventing them from developing their business career and personal advancement. They are aware that finance no longer conforms to the tradition of mechanically computing historic figures in company books, but that nowadays it involves managers being proactive and making crucial long-term decisions for their company.

Available on the market for the first time, this programme is designed to give working professionals a unique opportunity to obtain such practical financial skills, whatever their background. They will gain hands-on experience of working with financial issues and apply new skills in decision-making activities within a business context. One great benefit will be the enhancement of English language skills in a business context and environment.
The main areas covered by the syllabus are:
• Financial Reporting and Analysis under IFRS with comparison to US GAAP
• Financial Strategies
• Strategic Planning, Monitoring and Controlling
• Tax Environment
Education Requirements
Diploma of completion of studies at least of the first-cycle (i.e. Bachelor’s degree).
Preferably at least one-year-long practical experience at middle management level in any area of business or government.

Although one of the objectives is to enhance English language skills, evidence is needed that the candidate has at least intermediate (B2 level) working knowledge of the English language.
