Institute for Finance (IFF)

  • Description
  • Every­thing that counts

    The Insti­tute for Finance IFF deals with every­thing that counts: Account­ing, Audit­ing, Con­trol­ling, and bank­ing and finance. Num­bers must be “decision-​useful”, whether in the finan­cial man­age­ment of a com­pany or the prog­no­sis of their devel­op­ment. This is our credo — in research, con­sult­ing, edu­ca­tion and train­ing as well as at our three loca­tions in Basel, Brugg and Olten.

    Impor­tance of Finance

    Through the lib­er­al­iza­tion of cross-​border cap­i­tal move­ments, the impor­tance of cap­i­tal as a pro­duc­tion fac­tor has increased fur­ther more. Pri­vate and pub­lic com­pa­nies have to cope with the require­ments of the inter­na­tional cap­i­tal mar­kets and to adapt to increased competition.

    In this envi­ron­ment, Finance has become a key dis­ci­pline. The insights of mod­ern finan­cial the­ory facil­i­tate the bet­ter under­stand­ing of a mod­ern, con­nected economy.

    The Insti­tute for Finance IFF focuses its research, edu­ca­tion and con­sult­ing activ­i­ties on imple­ment­ing the mod­ern finan­cial knowl­edge into prac­tice. The four main areas – Account­ing, Audit­ing, Con­trol­ling, and bank­ing and finance – are at the core of IFF’s activities.
