Course Description

In this course we are going to tackle capital allocation, that is, how the CEO, and you as their strategic partner, go about deploying cash inside the business.  CEO’s are ultimately measured on their record of generating returns for their shareholders. 

The single most important determinant of shareholder returns is capital allocation.  Knowing what tools you have available and when to use them is the key.  We’ll look how and when you source cash.  We’ll also look at the strategies behind selecting the most optimal use of that cash, which may include buying back shares in yourself.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone interested in finance or related fields.


  • Define what is capital allocation and identify the relevant tools.
  • Identify and evaluate sources of cash generated by the business.
  • Integrate financing strategy with capital allocation to preserve flexibility and maximize returns.
  • Evaluate uses of surplus cash to pay dividends and/or repurchase shares.


  • Exposure to corporate finance.
  • No advanced preparation is needed for this course.
