Any professional with budget responsibility or who wishes to understand how budgets and costs can be effectively controlled. This course is suitable for managers, directors, lawyers, and professionals of all levels, across any industry, who are expected to make business decisions with direct financial impact to their business’ bottom line or to get a better understanding of their clients’ businesses.
Dr. Andrej Grubisic is a Professor of Finance at the Luxembourg School of Business. In 2010 he started a corporate finance firm: Grubisic & Partners Corporate Finance focusing on mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, valuations and due diligence.
You will gain a deeper appreciation for the role that corporate costs play in the process of value creation which corporations, and the people within them, are engaged in. The importance of controlling costs, as a way to increase value generated cannot be exaggerated if one accepts that creating new value is the only healthy and effective way we know to raise our standard of living.
The course will be completely interactive and case driven. Cases represent the closest we can get in experiencing management challenges in the real world. By selecting cases covering very different management situations, geographies, companies, industries, and technologies, you will be able to maximize general business knowledge and to acquire immediately actionable experience.
