Stockholm School of Economics
Campus Full time 2 years August 2017 Sweden Stockholm

Prepares you for careers such as Financial Analyst, Business Controller, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) & Investment Banker. [+]

Masters in Financial Management. As a graduate from our program you will have a deep understanding of how financial and non-financial controls can be integrated and used for steering purposes in multinational companies, how large companies report to external share- and stakeholders and how those evaluate the financial and non-financial performance of companies. Key topics include financial reporting principles, business control, capital budgeting, financial analysis and corporate valuation. In all our courses we take an analytical and international perspective. For example, in the financial reporting core courses we do not teach Swedish GAAP but rather focus on the main concepts and principles that lie behind most international accounting standards such as IFRS. Consequently, the insights you get in the program remains valuable also when concrete financial standards change. We see accounting as a language you need to understand in order to properly analyze and understand a business corporation. As an exclusive program with relatively low numbers of students, we can offer an intimate and creative learning environment. Our faculty (all active researchers) is engaged in pedagogical development and intrigued by the learning journey of our students. The program is thoughtfully designed to encompass a variety of pedagogical methods such as lectures, group work, case teaching and a high degree of real-world examples. With close connections to the business community we are also able to have frequent guest lectures by top management of multinational firms. Specific program requirements: ... [-]
