Whatever your goal or stage—self-funding a new business, buying a small business, managing your business for growth, or choosing an exit strategy—your financial management options and opportunities are dramatically different from those confronting your counterparts in large or public companies. Targeted to the needs of smaller firms, this new Executive Education program will empower you to choose the most effective financial strategies at all stages of your company's lifecycle.
By examining the various ways leaders finance the growth of their small companies and operate successfully under capital-constrained conditions, you will expand your understanding of the range of strategies available to you so you can choose the best path for your company.
Through lectures and case studies that focus on financial management in the smaller firm, you will explore topics with immediate application to your business—such as balancing liquidity and profitability, accessing funding sources, refining business models, managing growth and expansion, and valuing, buying, and selling your business.
This program is ideal for business owners and other financial decision makers in smaller private companies with annual sales volume of up to $15 million—typically those not funded by venture capital or public markets. It is also appropriate for investors focusing on smaller firms and business owners and chief executive officers exploring options for selling their companies.
