Key facts on the program
The post-graduate Executive Treasury Management & Corporate Finance programme combines two finance disciplines: Treasury Management and Corporate Finance. These disciplines largely overlap and are inextricably connected.
This post-graduate executive programme has now been running for more than 20 years at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. It is a unique programme both in the Netherlands and abroad.
As from September 2018 the programme will be delivered entirely in English to appeal to the increasingly large community of non-Dutch-speaking finance professionals in the Netherlands.
Participants successfully completing this post-graduate executive programme will be awarded with the title of Registered Treasurer. This title is well-known and widely recognized within the treasury professionals’ community.
The curriculum consists of 6 modules, each of which covers a clear sub-discipline in Treasury Management and Corporate Finance. Each module comprises approx 8 lecture days on Thursdays (from 15:30 until 20:00). It is an intensive and efficient 18-month programme.
The post-graduate Executive Treasury Management & Corporate Finance programme is a strategic partner of the Dutch Association of Corporate Treasurers (DACT). Partners in the programme are KPMG, Orchard Finance, PwC, and Zanders Treasury & Finance Solutions. Senior affiliates are programme lecturers.
Exemptions apply to alumni of Dutch RC and RA programmes.
'The program offers a lot: interaction with good teachers in a small setting, useful theoretical frameworks and a diverse network of fellow participants and alumni. Highly recommended to everyone working in the Corporate Treasury field, the RT title is a must-have for your professional carreer.' (Emile Raymakers - Group Treasurer, Nutreco)
'I have experienced the RT program as value added and refreshing to my knowledge and experience. Moreover, the program has a broader scope than pure Treasury Management, and offers a good learning experience in the areas of Corporate Finance and Financial Risk Management as well. The fairly small group allows a personal approach, permitting input from own experiences. This connects theory and practice. To summarize: a good investment for me and my employer!' (Michel van Baardewijk - Treasurer, Vestia)
'A fine academic program for corporate and public treasurers, their bankers and their consultants.'
(Ed de Bruin - Equity Sales Specialist, ABN AMRO Bank)
'The ideal basis for the treasurer of the future.' (Steven de Klein - Cash & Currency Manager - Royal Boskalis Westminster NV)
