Detailed description of content

With innovation and leadership perspective in mind, the course covers methods of financial management of companies. This includes an advanced discussion on both financial and non-financial performance management methods (e.g. CSR-accounting, knowledge-accounting etc). The aim of the course is to enable students to analyze and assess companies, and especially innovative companies, their financial decision methods and their business implementation. Thus, the objective of the course goes beyond budgeting and control techniques by visiting modern dynamic methods beyond budgeting as well as reflecting upon them related to different company cases.
