Course programme

Free Cash Flow: A Powerful Decision-Making Metric is the fourth module of five comprising the New York Institute of Finance’s popular Mergers & Acquisitions Professional Certificate program. One of the primary functions of a broker-dealer’s M&A desk is advisory services – consulting clients as they seek to grow through M&A. In this course, students will learn to use the Free Cash Flow metric to evaluate acquisition opportunities towards this end. Taught by instructors with decades of experience on Wall Street, this M&A course will equip analysts and associates with the skills they need to rise to employment in the M&A field. Additionally, directors and managers who have transitioned, or hope to transition, to M&A from other areas such as equities or fixed income can use this course to eliminate skill gaps. Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate bearing the New York Institute of Finance (NYIF) name. A NYIF certificate, highly valued in the finance industry, will bolster a resume or LinkedIn profile and prove the skills you’ve gained to potential employers. For those who wish to go further, students can enroll in the remaining four modules to earn the complete M&A Professional Certificate, backed by the New York Institute of Finance’s 93-year history. As a final option, students may also opt to sit for the NYIF Certificate of Mastery Exam, resulting in an M&A Certificate of Mastery upon successful completion.
