The practical and interactive sessions are designed to provide a thorough working knowledge of critical financial concepts.

As global businesses today span geographies, the programme also intends to provide an overview of international financial management.

The CSPO Training was awesome and great. The trainer Anderson made all the concepts look so easy and simple. Using his past experience as examples to explain various scenarios was a plus.
