                                          IMPARTING THE NITTY-GRITTIES OF FINANCE
                                          Finance is the life blood of any economic activity. Imagine any activity on this earth and
                                          we feel the imperative need of finance.

                                          The discipline of finance has undergone a sea change in recent years. There have been
                                          new innovations in terms of tools, techniques and instruments of fund raising as well as
                                          dealing with the Risks which the organizations have been facing. The economic growth has
                                          not only brought changes in this business environment throughout the world but at the
                                          same time has created turmoil and turbulence in economic activities.

                                          We have witnessed global financial crisis and many large organizations have collapsed like
                                          a pack of cards. The melt down in one part of the world has adversely affected other parts
                                          of the globe and even an ordinary person has not been spared from the adverse effects of
                                          the recession. The environment becomes even more arduous in times of turbulence.

                                          Such a scenario calls for the professionals at the helm of affairs of finance function to keep
                                          themselves abreast with the latest developments and equip with the tools and techniques
                                          to deal with such challenging situations. ICAI launches a Master in Business Finance
                                          Certificate Course to impart the nitty-gritties of finance to the members of the Institute.

                                          A very comprehensive and wide course curriculum has been formulated by the
  ICAI Centres of Excellence, Hyderabad   Committee. The course will provide an in-depth and comprehensive knowledge of
                                          theoretical as well as practical aspects of Business Finance to the participants.

                                          There is a requirement for the participants to prepare case studies based on real life
                                          situations. This will to a great extent sharpen the writing skills of the participants.

                                          The background of a Chartered Accountant is the most ripe to unlearn the past and learn
                                          the contemporary with ease and speed. Deep knowledge of business, its operational
                                          intricacies and ramifications of managerial decisions come natural to a Chartered
                                          Accountant. The Group discussions as a part of course curriculum will provide a good
                                          opportunity for the participants to share their rich knowledge and experience with each
                                          other. The course thus intends to enable the participants to be the best in finance arena.
