An introduction is offered to the economic role of the firm in the community, but the main part of the course is directed at the firm as the financial and administrative unit. The ambition for the course is to train the student in business analysis. After completed the course the student will have developed a solid toolbox of concepts for management accounting, investment theories, financial accounting, budget and control - closely integrated with fundamental topics of entrepreneurship.
