By 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 with this Economics and Business Administration - Accounting, Strategy and Control MSc course from the Copenhagen Business School (CBS).


The focus of the concentration is on driving the company towards its goals by making its strategy operational. There is a big difference between making a strategy and making it happen. Often this process is made difficult by vaguely defined goals or differences in perception of the strategy throughout the organisation. At this Economics and Business Administration - Accounting, Strategy and Control MSc course from the Copenhagen Business School (CBS) you will learn how to deal with these challenges by interpreting the strategy, breaking it down into smaller parts and making the goals concrete and measurable. This will enable you to create a uniform and tangible understanding of the strategy, from board level, down through management to the individual employee.

Career Opportunities
