Teaching Areas

The discipline of finance covers a variety of topics within the management of corporations and markets. Acting in an economic environment requires a goal-oriented structure, governance and control of economic activities, especially of economic causes and consequences that manifest themselves in cash flows.
Therefore, corporate finance is an essential cross-divisional activity in business administration and management, for both financial and non-financial companies. However, it is also related to individuals and markets, in particular financial markets (equity, bond, derivatives, currency and commodity markets).
The functions of finance in corporations and markets, governmental institutions, NGOs and international organizations require a permanent process of generating, enforcing and controlling economic and financial conditions and know how.
