Topics covered throughout the finance program include commercial bank real estate and corporate lending, determining interest rates, calculating cash flows, determining asset and organizational values, risk analysis, financial statement analysis, financial asset valuation, and the government regulations effecting corporations and their potential impact on profitability.
