They go beyond what is commonly known as boardrooms or corporate meetings. Dealing with external stakeholders within an organization can be tricky if the real experts are not on the ground. This is why undergraduates who have majored in business or economics need to have a 2 year Master degree program of Science in Financial management to start the PhD. The stakeholders base on financial statements in order to determine the strength of the organization. The bank lenders, as well as other business suppliers fall under the group of external stakeholders. Their earning is directly proportional to the strength of the organization on a financial perspective. The students under this course will be taught on how to identify stakeholders, ways of reporting and handling the organizational risks, carrying out an in-depth stake holder’s analysis, submitting financial reports among other sensitive duties.
