    Further Information

  • Brief Description

    Value-based management is a management approach that puts a company’s value at the center of all management decisions and activities. Following a broad perspective on value creation, this course does not focus on conventional performance metrics. Rather, our goal is to provide a holistic view and some additional knowledge on what drives value creation.

    Through participating in the course, students will gain a holistic understanding of the topic of value-based management, including more theoretical backgrounds, practical examples from the business world, as well as state-of-the art insights from international research.
