Institute for Finance

Everything that counts

The Institute for Finance IFF bundles the research and continuing education activities of the School of Business in the field of financial management. Two areas of competence cover key aspects of corporate financial management: Auditing, Accounting and Controlling plus Banking and Finance We deal with everything that counts.

We work with our partners from industry and public administrations to generate new knowledge. Our research addresses market needs and is always applied to practice in its focus and goals. Our portfolio of continuing education products is state of the art. A solid basis is provided, current developments are factored in, and foreseeable trends are taken into consideration. This is carried out in a variety of formats: from conferences and one-day seminars, to certificate courses (CAS) and master’s programmes (MAS). In this way continuing education creates value.

Competence Centers

We were commissioned by the Swiss Leasing Association to carry out a study on the significance of leasing in Switzerland. In collaboration with BAK-Basel we conducted a major empirical study, investigating the experiences of Swiss businesses with leasing. It was shown how the Swiss economy would benefit from the positive effects of an increase in the leasing rate.
