HEC Paris – Corporate Financial Management (IFAC) Strategic Management Accounting Hélène Löning Strategic Management Accounting Overview&LearningOutcomes
This course is primarily a strategy course, not an accounting course, but looks at how strategy can be inspired by management accounting. It uses concepts imported from management accounting to illuminate strategic analysis. Because it is strategy‐oriented, the course is not primarily a technical course focused on costing systems. Instead, the course applies profitability management methods and costing concepts to business situations. The main focus of the course is how profitability is generated (or deteriorated). At the end of the course you should be able to: ‐ Develop an understanding of different managerial accounting concepts for strategy such as: activity costing and cross segment analysis, cannibalization effects, value chain analysis, low cost value creation, kaizen costing, lean management & lean accounting, target costing; ‐ Know when they should be used for improving the business profitability; ‐ Identify how a given company generates superior profitability: What is the business model? What triangle cost‐value‐profitability is at work? Who pays and what for? What cost structure has been chosen? What management methods have been implemented to respond to the strategic choices? What decisions regarding outsourcing and off shoring have been made and why? The course will be useful if you would like to work in management and strategic consulting but also more broadly to fulfil any position as a business financial analyst or management accountant in a company’s Finance department. You will then have to serve as a « Business Partner » and co‐owner of earnings with the CEO and you will need to develop a clear understanding of the strategic development of the profitability of the business in which they operate – or that they analyse. KeyTopics
Activity costing and cross segment analysis, Cannibalization effects, Value chain analysis, Low cost strategy value creation, Kaizen costing, lean management & lean accounting, Target costing. These concepts should help you address the main topic of the course: What is the relationship between the value to the client created by a company, its costs, and its profitability?

Financial Statement Analysis

Financial Statement Analysis
Overview & Learning Outcomes
This course is intended to develop skills for the strategic analysis of financial reporting, and to develop experience in
evaluating financial performance as well as the risk of default. A company’s financial reports convey a wealth of useful
information about its business. Indeed, financial reports are the primary means by which managers communicate company
results to investors, creditors and analysts. These parties use the reports to judge company performance, to assess
creditworthiness, to predict future financial performance, and to analyze possible acquisitions and take-overs. Users of
financial statements must be able to meaningfully interpret financial reports, construct measures of financial performance.
To enable meaningful comparison across business, accounting regulators have developed a set of standards and rules that
provide guidelines to the reporting firms. Nevertheless, these standards and rules still allow mangers considerable discretion
in reporting the firm’s results. Since company managers choose among a set of available accounting procedures when
preparing their reports, we need to learn about accounting choices in order to achieve a thorough understanding of the
reports and their link to the underlying business activity and economic reality.

HEC Paris – Corporate Financial Management (IFAC) Mastering & Auditing IT Risks (cours en français) Gérard Pomper Mastering & Auditing IT Risks Overview&LearningOutcomes
This course is designed for students who need to understand the impact of Information Technologies on Financial information reliability. Most financial data flows are supported by information systems which have become more and more powerful but also complex and vulnerable. Consequently, the audit approach now includes IT considerations such as an assessment of the IT risk level or the use of information residing within the systems in order to improve the efficiency of audit work. In a first part, this course focuses on the organization of an information system and the main associated risks. It then shows how these elements influence the audit strategy. Two specific topics are then detailed. The first focus is on the use of techniques like Data Analytics to perform efficient audit procedures. A second focus is made on information systems security (e.g. data leakage, hacking, cyber criminality, etc). At the end of the course, the student should be able to: ‐ understand the risks related to the use of an information system within companies and the impact they have on the approach to perform a financial audit. ‐ understand the powerful use of IT tools to perform the audit and the way they can help auditors to improve the efficiency of the audit and assess the reliability of information. ‐ understand the main information systems security risks within an organization and their impact KeyTopics

HEC Paris – Corporate Financial Management (IFAC) Practice of Short‐Term Finance Louis Bollaert Practice of Short‐Term Finance Overview & Learning Outcomes
According to the CFO annual survey, capital management and long term financing make up 15% of the CFOs agenda which in turn means that … current assets management make the other 85%! This should come at no surprise as current assets management is where Finance teams meet, interact and support the rest of the organization in the day to day life of the company. Current assets management is no less complex than capital management. Across jurisdictions it is reported that 50% of bankruptcies are the consequence of the poor management of current assets and amongst the above mentioned 50%, half again are the result of the bankruptcy of one or more customers of the company. The objective of this course will therefore be to provide you with keys to understand the prominent topics of current assets management by focusing on the working capital and the treasury management. We will also touch upon the international trade support that your finance teams should provide to your company. Following this course, you should be able to:  understand the major hurdles of current assets management  work out the working capital and short term financing needs of a company  answer the following questions: ‐ what’s the optimum growth of any given company ? ‐ what’s the optimum working capital of any given company ? ‐ should I increase the payment terms of my customers ? ‐ should I reduce my payment terms to my suppliers ? ‐ how should I decide to make credit to a customer ? ‐ how should I organize my relations with my bankers ? ….
