MASTER OF MANAGEMENT

International Program

The International Program at CMMU aims to develop organizational leaders with up-to-date knowledge and skills in management to deal with dynamic global changes through a combination of relevant research and practical learning.

CORPORATE FINANCE (CF)

Fundamental knowledge in financial management is vital for successfully running a corporation. CMMU’s Master of Management in Corporate Finance (CF) responds to opportunities and challenges of the exciting and complex world of finance in a new era of globalization. The changing global context of the 21st century is demanding higher levels of profound expertise for corporate financial managers in Thailand and the Asia-Pacific Region.

Financing a corporation is the pre-requisite of all of its business activities. Managing new strategies for increasing the rate of return of investments (assets), and for being aware of the cost of capital of all financing decisions are taking on major importance. This equally applies in Thailand, where expertise in financial management in the corporate and public sectors needs to be strengthened. Furthermore, new financial tools such as options and derivatives are increasingly causing decisions to be made swiftly without the luxury of errors.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS MAJOR?

The aim of this program is to train students for a role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) or a top executive who needs to make, implement and monitor financial decisions. The program would be ideal for any applicants who would like to pursue a career in financial management. Backgrounds in accounting are not required, as CMMU provides basic financial accounting courses as well as advanced management accounting classes. Quantitative analysis with the use of appropriate software like Excel or @Risk would be emphasized. However, there is no need for a strong mathematical background to study in the program, as we apply mathematical methods, and not develop or prove them.
