Skema - Reporting and Financial Communication

Accurate, transparent and up-to-date information toward financial markets is becoming increasingly key for companies as soon as they go to the market to obtain new financing resources, both via equity and debt issuance. This module will review the process of financial communication inside corporations, from operational reporting to investors and analysts relations. Based on real cases, the course will review the regulatory framework, the main topics of financial communication (accounting, financial forecasts, corporate governance, strategy and business models, corporate responsibility…) and the key events in the life of publicly traded companies (IPO, M&A, profit warning…). The main aim of this module is to raise students’ awareness of how going public not only impacts day-to-day activity of corporate financial teams, but also raises specific strategic and outbound communication issues.
