  • Analysis of annual accounts from the perspective of equity providers and external creditors
  • Theoretical and practical concepts of financial controlling
  • Role of traders in internal decision-making, e.g. providing relevant information
  • Impacts of company taxation in terms of management decisions, e.g. choice of legal form and location
