During the winter term 2018/2019 we will hold the lecture "Value-based Management" (Modul Advanced Management Accounting I).

Objective and lecturing style:

The course aims at discussing why and how managers may create (shareholder) value. The course is structured along four modules: After an “Introduction” providing the motivation for the course and some basic concepts, we will start from the “Investor perspective” dealing with problems of security valuation and capital market theory. Next, we turn to the “Firm perspective” and discuss key issues of corporate valuation. Finally, we focus on the “Management perspective” studying problems of value creation, incentive structuring, the allocation of capital and some selected topics.

A combination of lectures, cases, discussions, and exercise sessions will be used. It is planned to integrate at least one guest lecture that is held by an industry expert.
