In recent years, the evolution of the world economy and financial markets has been affected by five factors:
- The growing globalization of economic activity in general and of financial activity in particular.
- The accelerated process of economic and financial concentration.
- The increase of business competitiveness.
- The liberalization of markets.
- Changes in the management of companies, increasingly oriented to the creation of value.
These characteristics have given rise to the appearance of new products and financial markets, as well as to important changes in the techniques of financial resources management. The main consequence is that there have been profound transformations in the functions and objectives of the financial departments.
Currently, the CFO must no longer only perform control tasks, although these are still his responsibility, but his added value as a professional will be given by his ability to analyse and solve problems, so his actions and competencies should be oriented to a greater involvement in the strategic management of the value of the company. The market demands more flexible financial managers for two reasons: the responsibility of the CFO within the different areas of the company is expanding and the dynamism of the economy forces them to be increasingly alert from the financial point of view.
The Master in Stock Exchange and Financial Markets is designed to prepare financial managers who know how to deal with economic changes with the necessary solvency and anticipation required by current organizations. Financial professionals who are flexible, know how to lead and lead teams, have the right skills to generate value at all times, allocate and distribute financial resources in the most efficient way possible and, above all, contribute in the direction of the company to the time to achieve your goals thanks to its strategic vision.
