Treasury management has increased massively in importance at corporates in the last 30 years. Tasks that were previously managed after a fashion by the accounts department are now undertaken in dedicated treasury departments based on high professional standards in terms of expertise and IT tools.

Comprehensive treasury education at universities however is still largely in its early days, particularly when it comes to practically highlighting interdependen-cies in the area of finance.

This course is intended to close the gap and specifically demonstrate these inter-dependencies and interactions between the various specialist areas of treasury management.
