Financial success has always been central to entrepreneurial activities. Yet never before has know-how in the field of finance been as decisive a success factor as it is today: identifying earnings potential, optimising cost structures, evaluating investments, analysing end results, obtaining tax benefits, developing strategies, compiling business plans, recognising financial risks or following developments on the stock exchange: graduates are at the focus of entrepreneurial decisions and have the financial situation firmly under control.
