Treasury management has gained massively in importance in companies over the past 30 years. The tasks that used to be performed more or less by the accounting department are now performed by dedicated treasury departments with high and professional standards in terms of expertise and IT.

Comprehensive treasury education at universities and technical colleges, on the other hand, is still in its infancy in many cases. Especially when it comes to the practical presentation of the interrelationships in finance.

This seminar is intended to close the gap and shows precisely these connections and interactions between the individual disciplines of treasury management.

We also offer this course in English offered.
