Corporate Finance Training

FIF’s corporate finance training covers basic finance concepts to more advanced topics in finance. Our training programs have been delivered from the VP level down to the most junior level of organizations. We work with our clients to provide customized training programs that fit their needs and accomplish their objectives.


The market for high–value employees is extremely competitive. Additionally, hiring new employees is expensive. According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the average cost for a new hire is $4,129 and filling a position takes 42 days.

Training is a value-added resource that can help mitigate the cost of new hires while improving decision making, job satisfaction, and employee morale. At FIF, we offer corporate training that is customized to ensure a positive return on training dollars.
