The programme aims to explain, in a pedagogical way, the financial reports and ratios used in business today. Theory is interspersed with concrete examples from different companies and events. As a participant in the programme, you develop your knowledge on two levels to also gain understanding for how decisions affect the financial performance and the results of the business.

 

The first level is based on a macroeconomic thinking, where the operations are analyzed with a strategic perspective on how different resources are allocated and developed. The second level is based on a business administration framework, on which understanding is created for how different decisions affect the basic economic relationships such as profitability, cash flow and financial balance.
