Business finance will be the third part of the course, both from the perspective of large and established firms and from the perspective of start ups.

The learning outcomes are the necessary knowledge for a graduate in engineering to solve managerial and entrepreneurial problems in organisations in the above mentioned fields, but also the capacity to work in team and to present and discuss a project work.
