If you’re new to financial decision-making or want a firmer grounding in the discipline, this “finance for non-finance professionals” program will dramatically increase your knowledge, deepen your practical understanding, improve your fluency and give you greater confidence in the decisions you make and influence. You’ll also learn to evaluate investment opportunities and develop new insight into how shareholder value is created and the key role executives like you play in the process.
In a highly collaborative and supportive learning environment, you’ll gain new knowledge and understanding in interactive classroom sessions led by senior Kellogg faculty, then spend time in working sessions with your instructors and fellow class members applying theory to practice with a heavy emphasis on real-life executive finance case examples.
This program is offered in a live virtual format. Our live virtual programs are built to deliver a rich experience that’s comparable to our in-person programs. You will have the opportunity to engage with our faculty and your peers in live discussions and lecture sessions. You will come away with the tools to navigate and succeed in the new business landscape.

This program exceeded my expectations and changed the daunting into an asset for me in my role.”
