The target audience of the programme consists of students
who are aiming for a career in corporate management, for
example, as general managers or management consultants,
in financial advisory, for example, as financial analysts or
investment bankers, or in controlling, treasury, or other fi-
nancial management functions. Whether working in finan-
cial management or financial advisory, senior management
or management consulting, understanding how to analyse
corporate performance, firm value, and credit worthiness
and the impact of strategic decisions and corporate restruc-
turings on these are valuable. Equally valuable is knowledge
of how to finance and manage the risk of ventures, be they      admission requirements and how to apply
start-ups or incumbent firms, and of how to design control      Admission	requirements
