Investment is a component of finance management and hence, mastering all the aspects and relationship between investment and finance is vital to kick start a successful career in fields such as finance management, accounting, business consultancy, investment banking and many more. Therefore, Study365 has put efforts on this Diploma in Investment and Finance Management – Level 3 to help you effectively manage the finances and investment of an organisation or an economy.

To start the course up, the tutors have provided a brief explanation about investment and the importance of it for an organization or an economy. Investments are mainly made based on assumptions and critical values. Therefore, this course has also generously included modules that will help you understand about assumption and critical values in investment, after which you will get into terms with the various investment evaluation methods that will help you analyse the returns.

Once you get a good grip on the various investment evaluation methods, you will be walked through how to choose between the various methods to find out the most effective and comfortable approach that suits you or your organisation. Topics such as taxation, inflation, working capital, amortization of loans, evaluation of loans, evaluation of other credits, financial planning and many more will also be given due attention through this course to bring you out as a talented individual that you hope for.
