In recent years we have had to deal with in a business crisis, as a result of the global financial and economic situation. These circumstances have radically transformed the role of Finance Management in companies. From a role focused on supervising, implementing and controlling funds relatively initially easy to obtain, the Finance Manager has felt the need to take part in the firm's strategic management, providing value to tackle the scarcity of resources as well as providing planning, negotiating and risk analysis expertise.
There has been a transition from management to adding value in a situation where the economy and financial markets are liberalized, where they are concentrated, and where they offer a wide range of new and innovative products.
The role of the Finance Manager is and will continue to be, critical in the management team of the company, even if the economic cycle changes, or in those economies or sectors that are not in recession. Accordingly, academic training in this area will enable anyone who possesses it to enjoy the benefits of a greater employability in his or her professional career, in addition to better opportunities for professional promotion. This is why our program has been designed to train professionals to acquire technical knowledge of the finance sector, in addition to developing managerial skills in the area of decision-making that will be demanded in the labor market.
