This ESADE Alumni Finance Club event will discuss the changes taking place in companies’ finance departments with regard to business knowledge, customer understanding and direct impact on strategy, all in the new digital environment that lies ahead.
It will examine the new approaches emerging in the field of finance, with particular emphasis on data management and analysis for decision taking. It will also discuss the increasingly strategic role of business intelligence, how it is incorporated into different companies, and also how it complements traditional financial planning and management control functions.
On this occasion, three senior executives from the finance areas of the foremost companies AMADEUS, SANITAS DENTAL and CARLSON WAGONLIT TRAVEL will be talking to us about their experience in this field.
This event will also have a special feature: two of the speakers have taken courses at ESADE.
