Course description

Advanced Diploma in Treasury Management

The Advanced Diploma in Treasury Management (FCT) will give you the skills to become a forward thinker. You will be a respected senior finance professional with significant influence who shapes business strategy to deliver success.

The qualification builds on the knowledge gained in the Diploma in Treasury Management and the syllabus covers the commercial and financial challenges facing a business at a strategic level. The extensive programme provides a practical understanding of the tools, techniques and financial products used by treasurers and, most importantly, how to apply these to real-life, contemporary issues.
