Restructuring Finance Expert

Course Type: Online

Nerves are frayed. Internal stakeholders are losing sight of the bigger picture. The company’s morale is plummeting and uncertainty can no longer be concealed. The demands and pressure from external stakeholders are also increasing. Anyone who has ever experienced special or crisis situations in a company knows the circumstances that make restructuring a challenge: limited time and money.

To successfully manage restructuring in all its forms, diverse skills and strengths must work together. While multidisciplinary skills are typically required in restructuring situations, all restructuring efforts have one thing in common – the finance function is at the center to quickly develop the right insights and generate necessary reports.

In this course, you will learn in a practical way over four engaging mornings how to maintain composure during restructuring situations, and how to use the right methods and tools from a finance perspective, which are applicable in every restructuring, to optimally lead or support complex, interdisciplinary, emotion-driven restructuring processes.

Become a “Restructuring Finance Expert” and gain the skill set that takes you to the next level in times of multiple crises, VUCA world, and disruptive events.
