Programme profile

In the modern business world, national borders are becoming less and less distinct and money flows are becoming increasingly international. To be competitive in the global environment, it is important for organisations to organise, implement and monitor their activities. The information arising from it is crucial for correct managerial decision making. This asks for specialists in the field of international finance and control. This programme has been developed to cater to the need for these specialists.

The programme trains you to become a financial professional who understands that a specific approach is needed in every country.

For example, your employer wants to set up a production facility in Taiwan. It is your task to calculate future revenues, production costs and the net present value of the project.
Or, your company wants to take over one of its competitors and it's your task to research their financial information to determine the value of this company.

As an international financial specialist, you know how to create profitability, take investment decisions, apply risk management and present a business or export plan.

On this programme, you will spend 6 to 18 months abroad for an internship or exchange
