A graduate of Imperial College in London, England, Edesiri Onatejiroghene Ibru left the institution with a masters in engineering in 2001, returning to complete her MSc in metals and energy finance a little over a decade later.

Corporate finance professionals generally serve one of two functions. Some will be tasked with handling the accounting concerns of their companies, with most focus being placed on the day-to-day issues. These include tracking expenses, overseeing the payroll, ensuring invoices are paid within relevant deadlines, and balancing the books. They also need to have strong knowledge of government regulatory procedures to ensure all of this is done in accordance with the law.

The second potential function is financial analysis, which involves evaluating the data surrounding profits, revenue, and expenditures to determine how to most effectively use the capital available to the company. Analysts will often be tasked with providing valuable information for use in business decisions, in addition to structuring deals.
