Over 1,300 participants have already completed the "Basic course: Treasury Management (GTM)" and acquired the necessary tools for their daily work in corporate treasury management.

In the financing module, we look in detail at all aspects of the financing process. Starting with the financial status, the choice of planning approach and liquidity risks, we discuss creditworthiness as a control parameter and common financing instruments as well as the basics of transfer pricing. We then dive deep into the forms of financing: from bank financing, including the components of loan agreements, to the opportunities (and risks) of export financing, to bonds and shares.

Optionally, an examination can be taken afterwards to confirm the learning success and document the acquired qualification(treasury certification).
