Digital Transformation in the Corporate Finance Function: WHU offers new Executive Education Program

Düsseldorf, September 16, 2019. WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, in cooperation with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), is offering a new program in its Executive Education portfolio from October 28 to November 19, 2019.

The intensive four-day program consists of two in-class modules designed for finance executives wanting a more in-depth understanding of the corporate finance function of the future. Professors, renowned experts from the field and CFOs will provide inspiration and advice to participating executives along with practical, applied case studies and plenty of opportunity for a lively exchange of ideas with colleagues on their way to digital transformation.

Gori von Hirschhausen, PwC Europe Finance Consulting Leader, says: "Digitalization is everywhere now. To take advantage of the opportunities as well as master the associated challenges, it’s essential to have a holistic view of every dimension of the finance function’s operating model. This is where our program takes you – starting with the conception and design of future-oriented financial functions to concrete advice for realizable operational implementation".

"The corporate finance function is being changed fundamentally by digitalization. Our program supports participants in developing the necessary knowledge and skills to create their own "Digital Roadmap" which also addresses the requisite paradigm shift in corporate culture that goes along with it” adds Professor Dr. Martin Glaum, Chair of International Accounting at WHU.

Due to the highly practical nature of the program and the opportunity to apply relevant concepts to a company-specific digital roadmap, the program provides real added value for both participants and their companies.
