Upon completion of this course the student should be able to theorize and reflect upon the relationships between strategy, organization and management control. The student should also be able to theorize and reflect upon behavioural aspects related to management control. The student should critically assess the theories and models included in the course.

Contents
The course brings up theories of Management Control in a broader sense and from different perspectives. It deals with both the managing of an organisation and the managing within an organisation, the latter on various organisational levels. The strategic Management Control will be studied and linked to management philosophy and business development.
