Event description

Description

The Stockholm School of Economics has decided to launch the Accounting and Financial Management Center of Excellence (ACE). In an increasingly challenging business environment, proficiency in the areas of financial reporting, financial analysis, valuation and management control is required both for specialists and for people in leading positions.

The new center of excellence at the Stockholm School of Economics has three major pillars:
1) a top-level master program in Accounting and Financial Management with a significant share of international students; 2) a highly attractive research environment for scholars in the field; and 3) a creative and innovative partner to the business community with a unique hub for student, faculty and business talent growth.

You are cordially invited to the Stockholm School of Economics on April 14, 2016 at 16.00 to participate in our seminar and reception to launch ACE.
