2. Applying knowledge and understanding: Although the course has the ambition to provide a solid theoretical preparation, it is at the same time strongly oriented towards "know-how". At the end of the course, the student will be able to operate within the finance function with mainly operational roles. The student will acquire application knowledge regarding the evaluation of investments, financing choices and business evaluation. The didactic approach enhances the continuous interaction between theoretical notions and the acquisition of professional skills. The presentation of the theoretical topics will often be supplemented by case studies and structured exercises provided in the textbook. The classroom exercises and the eventual carrying out of reports will help the student to acquire a good ability to apply analytical and conceptual tools for the interpretation and solution of financial problems.
