Programme in brief

During International Finance & Control (IFC) you will learn how to deal with all kinds of money-related questions within companies. How can we raise our profits? How can we finance the new machinery we intent to buy? How do I keep track of all the money flows which enter and exit the company both on national and international level? Do the different departments in the company work according to their budgets? Companies are constantly looking for professionals who can help them answer questions like these. As an International Finance & Control student you will learn how to answer these questions.
