This finance course is intended for students who want to increase their familiarity with the practical applications of financial management. The four modules provide students with an opportunity to acquire a high level of expertise in central areas of financial management of firms, covering topics such as firm valuation, financing, investments, as well as risk management. While each of the modules cover different aspects of the financial management of companies, module 1-3 constitute the basis for the understanding of the fourth module. The course is given and examined in English.
We are recommending that students who wants to deepen their understanding further take the two year master of science in finance. (These four modules combined are the core courses in the one year master).
