Financial Executives International is launching an immersive three-day business simulation seminar at two locations.

The course, entitled Financial Leadership & Decision Making Amidst Complexity, is designed to be on the same caliber as a business school class. It will take place in Anaheim, Calif., on April 25 to 28, and Morristown, N.J., from May 2 to 5.

The class teaches students about making decisions under pressure and with scarce resources; how to develop, coach and motivate team members; and how to understand changes in the global, regulatory, competitive and customer landscapes. It includes guest speakers and networking opportunities, and is being offered to FEI members and nonmembers alike.

The class is offered in conjunction with Tri Corporation and is taught by a team of finance and business experts, including Dr. Thomas Conine of Fairfield University and Dr. Dennis Rebelo of Roger Williams University, who is FEI’s chief learning officer.

“Providing financial professionals with the professional and personal development experiences they need to grow into senior leadership positions, and supporting those senior executives once they get there, is core to our mission,” said FEI president and CEO Andrej Suskavcevic in a statement. “We are bringing top-quality development opportunities, akin to those run by Fortune 100 corporations, to a wide array of financial professionals. These learning opportunities will enable them to build the cross-functional and dynamic skills they need to be leaders within their organizations.”

Participants in the course can earn 39.5 CPE credits. For more information, click here for the Anaheim course and here for the Morristown course.
