Course Content

This course is one of the interdisciplinary electives of the Business
Administration program. Its main aim is to help students without a
background in BA to develop state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the
field of Financial Management. These are crucial competencies for BA
graduates, as virtually all of them will sooner or later get into
contact with financial issues, such as financial accounting and
corporate financing. Moreover, having a solid base of financial
knowledge and skills will be an important complementary competency to
developing other skills related to HRM, IM, LCM, MC, and S&O. To provide
this solid knowledge and skill base, this course gives a broad overview
on the financial management discipline in non-financial corporates.
Topics that we will cover in this course include:

- Financial accounting;
- Financial statement analysis;
- Financial decision making tools
- Most important aspects on corporate financing and valuation

The final goal is to be able to judge an organization and their strategy
on their value creation capacities.
