About the Program

Finance is a fundamental element of our world, but it is also a language—a complex language that requires a certain quantitative skill set and disciplined focus to master and learn to speak fluently. To become a leader in finance you must be able to do more than understand it or even speak it, you must be able to translate it clearly and effectively to those who depend on your specialized expertise.

As a leader who speaks the language of finance, you will be the interface—the one responsible for understanding and then communicating this complex technical language to people who are themselves accomplished and intellectually savvy in their own fields, be it personal clients or heads of corporations, to explain, listen, and further clarify complex financial issues, making you indispensible part of any organization.
