About

With this Applied Economics and Finance program from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) You will understand the economic incentives that drive the company and learn the tools of finance and econometrics for financial decision making. 

Overview

Understanding the firm in its global and economic environments is an important part of this concentration. With this Applied Economics and Finance program from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) you will learn how to analyse and influence these environments to optimise internal company structures, to identify financial opportunities for the company, or to manage problems of governance, such as modifying conflicts of interest between stakeholders. 

Through a deep understanding of the economic incentives that drive the company, you will know how best to position it in different markets with different levels of competition. Through this, you will learn to give recommendations on how this should influence decisions on pricing strategy, the attractiveness of a merger, or the level of aggressiveness in market competition. You will also work on solving and preventing incentive problems created by these decisions among or between different stakeholders and company management. 

Through knowledge of financial markets, you will be able to influence the company’s competitive situation or protect it from the risk connected with uncertainties in the market. 

Career 

The majority of graduates will find employment in financial institutions. For instance as financial analysts working in a mutual or pension fund, performing evaluations of market developments and advising on how best to make investments.

Some will work in consulting. As a consultant you can help companies tackle various problems. For instance if a company is not performing well in a certain market and needs to find out why.Others will find work in larger companies within corporate finance where you could help make analyses for investments and financial decisions, and find ways of maximising shareholder value.

But the financial and quantitative skills acquired in the AEF concentration can also lead to jobs in a broad range of other areas, like public institutions or international organisations.
