In the course the approaches to value-oriented international financing and controlling, as well as well-established tools such as zero-based budgeting, performance measurement or contribution margin accounting will be classified by their significance. The fundamentals of international financing and budgeting, allocation in the planning process and the assessment of both the company and project success with the help of appropriate indicators and performance measurement systems, such as the balanced scorecard, should enable students to determine a suitable control strategy and key performance indicators in real world examples, both in the planning and in the assessment of target deviations
