What our participants say

Great learning experience. Loved the pace of the program and the various inputs through readings, videos, mini cases, live sessions, breakout tasks, and individual and group assignments. I honestly couldn’t have wished for more variety. Great practicality and an amazing professor and support staff.

Philip Daniel Salamon Owner of DS Leadership Advisory and Co – CEO, OneDay Ventures, Germany

IMD’s Business Finance program was an eye-opener for me since I had no prior knowledge and experience in this field. The content of the program was well-structured and will serve as a stepping stone for me to understand the financial implications of whatever project decisions I make as a technology development engineer. This has really boosted my confidence during meetings with the Business Management Unit as I have come to understand the financial terms, causes, and effects of the actions of various departments.

Dr. Jerome Amoah Technology Development Engineer, Fuji Europe Africa B.V., The Netherlands

It was a great learning experience. Very dynamic, fast-paced, practical, and applicable in real life business situations. The quality of the delivered content was excellent and the support team very approachable, providing great feedback and support and making the experience personable.

Rikard Coro General Manager Nordics, Triumph Motorcycles Limited, Sweden

This program represented a major change in the way I understand business financials and enabled me to ask better questions regarding business options.
