The MBF program is designed for the personal and professional development of graduates who are interested to work in accounting, strategy, finance and management fields. It is also appropriate for other professionals who desire to perform the role of financial management in government or non-government organizations.
The strategic financial management integrates the financial management function into business strategy and every other aspect of an organization's operation. Applying the strategic financial management knowledge and skills improves an organization's effectiveness and efficiency.
Hence, in today's highly competitive business environment, both government and non-government organizations are increasingly putting more emphasis in this area to achieve their organizational objectives.
