The goal is for you to grow a deep understanding of dilemmas that affect financial analysis in the face of sustainability. The Sustainable Financial Analysis programme aims to integrate sustainability in the financial analyses of companies and investment portfolios. Where traditional finance focuses on financial valuation, this programme investigates risks as well as opportunities from recognizing sustainability .

It is a practical and useful study, emphasizing concrete methods and skills, thus enabling you to include the sustainability dimensions in well-founded financial analysis.

The study takes a look at the information challenges associated with sustainability analysis. The information needed for financial analysis that consider sustainability is both difficult to obtain, and it also has lower quality and comparability due to the lack of standardization of concepts and key figures.

The programme is offered in collaboration with the Norwegian Association of Financial Analysts, NFF.

Who is this for?

The programme is targeted towards experienced Norwegian and primarily Nordic students with a professional interest in how to better understand the sustainability dimensions when approaching financial tasks. Relevant professional backgrounds include being an investor, analyst, banker, advisor, or working in a company’s treasury or finance function, journalist, regulator, or rating analyst.

The programme is adapted for participants from both the private and public sector.
