Univers Finance & contrôle de gestion
A broad perspective on finance as a strategic partner for creating value
Created for mid to upper-level executives from a non-financial background, this program offers a broad perspective on finance as a strategic partner for creating value.
Value creation is at the heart of corporate strategy, and gaining a well grounded understanding of financial management is essential in today’s competitive environment.
It is the responsibility of every general manager to develop an understanding of the way a company’s strategic decisions and operating activities affect its financial performance and its ultimate value. Linking strategy and financial performance has therefore become more crucial than ever.
