DescriptionBy working with measurements of cost, performance and risk, you will learn to identify strategic challenges within organisations, and to design the proper course of action and incentive structures to respond to them. This understanding of numbers and their organisational role will facilitate the implementation of company strategy and value creation.
Career OpportunitiesSome graduates will find employment in consulting. As a consultant you can help companies tackle various problems. You could for instance advise companies on organisational restructuring, optimisation of various internal processes, or implementation of systems for control.
The solid understanding of company cost and value drivers also leads graduates to positions as financial analysts and investment bankers, working with valuation of companies for financial institutions, or management of financial risk in corporations.
Graduates from the ASC concentration also find work as financial or business controllers. From this position you could for instance be evaluating internal performance and compliance of business units or employees. You could also be making budget analysis to plan and control organisational projects and initiatives.
