Course description

A business controller has a key role in producing information for business management to support decision-making and the future development of a business. Strategic partnership with management is needed, but this role also requires personal development.  

The Business Controller liiketoiminnan strategisena kumppanina (Business Controller as a Strategic Business Partner) program offers a way to develop yourself in your role as a controller and tools to develop your competence and support your company’s operations and work processes. The program focuses on the controller’s role as a supporting partner for management in decision-making and steering the business.

The program will allow networking and exchanging ideas and experiences with other controllers and experts.  

During the program, you will develop your business skills and focus on strategic work and strategic planning from a controller’s perspective.
