The purpose of the course is to provide students with a solid knowledge and understanding of fraud, potential perpetrators, and its impact on an organization and to develop the students’ skills and competences to detect and prevent fraud.

Losses due to fraud have been estimated as high as five percent of an organization’s revenues. It is important to do everything possible to reduce that amount. Fraud is not limited to a specific type or size organization, but can potentially impact any organization. The course will include a basic understanding of the Fraud Triangle and who commits fraud, and how to target resources on how to prevent fraud, e.g. through a strong system of internal controls, and when it is not possible to prevent, how to discover fraud based on strong data monitoring and analysis processes and techniques using detailed transaction data in modern information systems to support basic and complex data analysis. The course discusses data driven fraud detection, including topics such as continuous monitoring, structured vs. unstructured data and visualizations. Tools such as IDEA and ACL are designed to help accountants document and analyze information provided by an organization’s information systems. These packages have been used by auditors, and are also important tools for forensic accountants’ information analysis. The course also covers the different types of fraud against, and on behalf of an organization. This distinction is important because an accountant looking for revenue fraud needs a different perspective and techniques than the same individual looking for asset misappropriation fraud. The course will be a combination of theory and application of theory to specific cases and circumstances. The course will include risk perspectives on organization types, sizes, and management. The context of problems will vary among different types of fraud and investigation tools and techniques.
Námsmarkmið
At the end of the course students should: - Know who commits fraud and why. - Describe several types of fraud and the potential impact on an organization. - Describe the basic components of the fraud triangle. - Know the importance of finding fraud at the earliest possible time to prevent/minimize losses. - Know the basic steps in a data analysis process in the context of data driven fraud detection with regard to continuous monitoring, structured vs. unstructured data and visualizations. At the end of the course students should be able to: - Identify resources relevant to the performance of forensic engagements. - Apply the fraud triangle to specific cases. - Identify controls that may be applied to prevent specific types of fraud. - Use software to import and understand data relationships. - Analyze case data to identify anomalies. At the end of the course students should be able to: - Detect anomalies that potentially indicate fraud. - Develop and implement preventive strategies against fraud. - Develop and implement policies/controls that address different types of fraud.

The purpose of this course is to provide students with a set of conceptual frameworks as well as practical tools to develop their skills and competences to become effective negotiators. Good communication skills are crucial when it comes to successful cooperation, solving issues in the workplace, when negotiating agreements in business or private life.

Individuals have different interests and values and the ability to negotiate successfully rests on combination of analytical and interpersonal skills. These skills are crucial for achieving results in today’s complex organizations as well as in ad hoc projects and teamwork required in today´s increasingly global business world. Without tried methods organizing our approach, our results can be inconsistent and inferior. Students will therefore learn how important it is to use the relevant methods to gain agreement and cooperation from others to achieve win/win results. Students’ engagement will be core of this course which helps students to achieve better and more sustainable outcomes.

The course explores and develops knowledge and skills in negotiations and most common tactics. Students will also learn the importance of active listening and how to create and sustain long-term customer relations. The emphasis will be on the concept of economic behaviour, different styles and strategies. The overall emphasis throughout the course is on active participation as that is an effective way to learn new skills and change behaviour. The course starts with simple two-party negotiations and short lectures in-between. As the course goes on students will take on more complex multiparty negotiations and structured negotiation exercises. Case study method will be used in class using real or as real as possible exercises. In-class time will be used to allow students to do practical exercises using cases. The time will also be used for discussion and debate along with short lectures.
Námsmarkmið
The student should:
- Know the key concepts and methodologies in negotiations
- Understand the dynamics of each "stage" of the negotiation process
- Recognize different communication styles and how to influence the course of events
The student should be able to:
- Prepare and plan negotiations successfully
- Apply methods, theories and concepts of negotiation to create mutually beneficial agreements and to maximize the gain for both parties
The student should be able to:
- Actively lead and take part in challenging negotiations
- Critically assess and develop supporting arguments and recommendations pertaining to practical issues in any negotiation settings

 Description: In recent decades, the field of finance has developed a successful paradigm based on the notions that investors and managers are generally rational and the prices of securities are generally efficient. However, recent theoretical and empirical research has shown this paradigm to be insufficient to describe various features of actual financial markets and firm behavior. This course will describe how financial decisions of individuals and firms might deviate from those predicted by traditional financial/economic theories. Behavioral finance recognizes that our abilities to make complex financial decisions are limited due to the biases and errors of judgement to which all of us are prone. Students explore the existence of psychological biases in financial decision-making and examine the impacts of these biases in financial markets and other financial settings. The course examines how the insights of behavioral finance complement the traditional finance paradigm.   Objectives: To compare behavioral finance and traditional finance To identify and apply psychological concepts to financial markets and financial decision-making To understand key psychological biases that affect decision making process To apply research findings into finance anomalies

The purpose of the course is to provide students with profound knowledge in accounting information systems and with skills and competences to design, implement, use and manage accounting information systems. In this context, the course addresses accounting information systems in the context of both management accounting and financial reporting.

The following topics and concepts are covered:
The use of information technology is an integrated part of business management. One of the primary information systems in the company is the accounting information system where information technology plays a crucial role. Small companies typically use simple accounting information systems with little functionality, while larger companies use accounting information systems that are integrated with other modules such as sales, distribution, purchasing and human resource (i.e. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems). In an integrated environment, the accounting information system supports the business processes, registers information throughout the process and aims at real time reporting to decision makers. Looking at accounting information systems being offered from vendors such as SAP, Microsoft Business Solutions, and Oracle the trend is towards more integration regardless of company size. Generally, accounting information systems need to be designed to safeguard company assets and secure quality of information. Here, safeguarding assets means securing data, preventing and/or detecting internal or external fraud as well as protecting the accounting information system from external threats such as hackers and physical damage. Securing quality of information means minimizing the risk of erroneous or wrong data entering the system and detecting it should it happen anyway. Safeguarding assets and securing information quality is done by using internal control systems and activities including controls specifically aimed at the information system as well as controls that are broader in nature. This includes separation of duties, application controls, validation checks and authorizations. Developments in information technology and accounting information systems require employees with knowledge of how information systems and accounting unite. This includes, e.g., accountants, controllers, consultants and auditors.
Námsmarkmið
The student should:
- Know the central elements of corporate information systems including ERP systems
- Describe the role and integration of accounting systems in ERP systems
- Present the main business processes of a company and describe how these are supported by an ERP system
- List the main risks that ERP/accounting information systems face and the control categories and types that can be used to minimize these risks
- Know the main steps in information system audits
- Describe the main steps in the selection and implementation of ERP systems including accounting information systems

The student should:
- Match control types to threats
- Identify control weaknesses in descriptions of IT-supported business processes
- Propose controls to match risks in IT-supported business processes
- Design simple dataflow diagrams and flowcharts
- Interpret data flow diagrams and flowcharts describing information systems

The student should:
- Evaluate the need for different types of controls in a given IT-supported business process
- Evaluate the adequacy of internal control structures in various IT-supported business processes
- Plan the main steps of an overall information system audit
- Plan the main steps of an ERP selection and implementation project

The modules will also provide insight into how ESG considerations affect investors, consumers, and employees and how it is becoming a central topic at the Board level. The course will provide an in-depth look at the policies, metrics, and data related to ESG, as well as real-world case studies and cutting-edge innovations. It will also cover the challenges and future developments in the field, giving participants a comprehensive understanding of the industry. Participating in this course will equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to step forward in an ESG career. Description of the teaching methods The course is designed in such a fashion that theory and practice are closely studied. The course will introduce participants to existing knowledge in the fields of ESG, ESG policies, metrics and data. We will explore this dynamic topic through lectures, class-based case exercises and real-world best practices. Students will also work on cases relevant to their own organizations. The course will adopt an international perspective, illustrating cases from around the world. Such an international perspective will only benefit the learning taking place in the classroom where specific methodologies and organizational innovations will be grounded and contextualized by the cases. The classroom dynamics are managed through a dialogue-based approach to teaching. Participants will regularly be tasked to consider trade-offs and a variety of options so as to devise solutions to complex ‘real-life’ ESG dilemmas/opportunities.

For the past 100 years we have developed management principles that have increased our efficiency and lead to enormous growth. But these principles have been shown to have a scary lopsidedness.
Today we can lead and engage employees so much so that they put aside morality and their own health to reach goals and deadlines – and while ever more people suffer for work-related burnout, our creativity, innovation, and human balance plummet. We have to be efficient and create results. But we also have to change focus from short-term solutions to sustainable management that ensures long-term productivity.
 
The purpose of the course is to provide students with an understanding of the concept of sustainability in leadership and management and the ability to identify and analyze problems and issues facing management and personnel and provide perspective about both the advantages and problems with traditional management, performance management and modern management theories and practices.
Námsmarkmið
The student should:
- Have an understanding of sustainability in leadership, organization and teams
- Have an understanding of the concept of psychological safety and how it impacts burnout, interpersonal performance, problem solving and innovation
- Demands and decision latitude and other factors impacting performance and work-related stress and burnout
The student should:
- Be able to identify and analyze the short term performance and long term sustainability of the management practices and models applied in the organization, its management processes and leadership.

The student should:
- Be able to take part in professional discussions about performance management, self-leadership and burnout and stress in organizations.
- Be able to develop and implement improvements to the sustainability of management processes and leadership.

In the age of digitalization, information security is more important than ever. A key layer for ensuring information security is the employees, who need to be aware of possible information security risks and behave accordingly. Organizations introduce information security policies to establish required rules for information security behavior and implement information security awareness programs, which are systematically planned campaigns. The course provides a comprehensive overview of information security from the management perspective. The focus is on how to design measures such as awareness programs to protect organizations’ data and keep it safe from cybercrime. The content is divided into three main sections. First, addressing actual information security risks, students will get an overview of the managerial perspective of information security and associated problems in organizations. Second, the course provides a deep dive into design thinking for solving problems of employee misbehavior and fostering an active risk culture. Third, the course addresses learned techniques for organizations. Students chose an organization and apply design thinking to develop information security awareness programs and mitigate information security risks. In the lectures, we will: · apply design thinking methods to create information security awareness programs, · identify organizational challenges in designing information security methods, · measure information risks and information security awareness (e.g. KPIs), · discuss leaderships’ influence on risk and security behavior, · structure a bundle of measures to create a proactive risk culture, · evaluate emerging technologies trends such as AI, Blockchain technology and IoT enable opportunities for Risk and Information Security Management.

 The purpose of this course is to introduce and involve students to adopt entrepreneurial mindsets and creative approaches. To act and think in creative ways is a core capacity in post-industrial societies on the verge of a new revolution, characterised by continuous change and ruptures. It is a well-documented claim that no longer can we rely on previously learned expertise to ensure our future careers and to solve current challenges. In this environment leadership and entrepreneurship needs to involve the ability to act as a force of change. This course addresses entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership, by putting creativity and entrepreneurial mindsets at the core. The course starts from the premise that entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership are creative and contextual processes driven by passion, commitment and the ability to navigate in unfamiliar territories. These processes have a tendency to be non-linear, involving both organizing and disorganizing. The course will challenge students on recognizing their interests and passions. It will also challenge their problem solving skills and ability to lead such tasks. Classes will be a combination of lectures and workshops relying on students’ active participation. At times, classes will involve guest teachers. Students will be required to work on assignments between classes; workshops and assignments will frequently be organized around challenges practicing entrepreneurial problem solving, as well as attempting to utilize students’ interests and strengths.

Whether creating a new market or further penetrating an existing one, both strategic and tactical abilities are required: R&D, finance, portfolio management, segmentation and positioning, as well as pricing, promotion and distribution. It also reinforces a strong focus on competitive thinking and market understanding and reflects the impact a sudden competitive move or changing customer needs can have on a company, and encourages teams to look beyond their own corporate walls for insight and ideas.International Marketing Strategy would be dedicated to analyse frameworks for developing international marketing strategies. Students look into different cases of marketing strategy for companies that are competing in the international market place, examine approaches to international market segmentation and positioning, and international marketing mix strategies.

The purpose of the course is to understand the necessity for an enterprise-wide approach for planning, designing, and guiding enterprise architecture (EA) development, defining the components of an EA and their interrelations from a business-to-IT perspective, defining enterprise architecture modelling (EAM) processes, methods, and products, specifically EA modeling, EA planning, EA principles, and EA governance. Selecting software tool support for EAM, understanding the context, stakeholders, and application scenarios of EAM are also covered as well as institutionalizing EAM in organizations.

Virtually all of today’s large organizations have to cope with the significant complexity of their information systems (IS) landscape. The application architecture of large organizations is often comprised of several hundred to some thousand applications that support business processes. These applications are implemented by an even larger number of software systems, which are run on various generations of information technology (IT) infrastructure. These components and their interrelations represent the architecture of an enterprise, i.e., EA. Changing only one of these EA components often impacts a potentially large number of related components of the organization. Changing several of these components at the same time in a number of projects or programs by division of labor leads to potentially redundant and/or inconsistent processes, applications, software systems, or IT infrastructure components. In other words, it creates misalignment in the EA. The factual short-term consequence of a misaligned EA is a waste of resources. The longer-term consequences are increasing efforts and difficulties to maintain existing IS and lacking resources for innovation. This development is almost inevitable unless explicitly addressed. This course discusses the concepts of EA and of EAM as a means to guide the design and evolution of EA.

The course is taught in two blocks. The first block will focus on definitions, concepts, and methods of EA and EAM. The second block will focus on tool support, application, and institutionalization of EAM.
Námsmarkmið
Knowledge: Collection of facts, concepts, theories and techniques acquired by students. The student should:
- Understand the necessity for an Enterprise Architecture Modelling (EAM) approach in organizations.

- Are familiar with EAM processes, methods, and products, specifically EA modeling, EA planning, EA principles, and EA governance.
- Understand the context, stakeholders, and application scenarios of EAM.
- Know software tools that support EAM.
Skills: The ability to apply knowledge to different tasks in the context of enterprise architectures. The student should:
- Be able to apply basic EAM methods.
- Be able to plan and develop the EA.
- Be able to identify conflicts of interests between stakeholders and the need for EA governance.
- Be able to apply EAM software tools.

Competences: The ability to apply knowledge and skills in the context of enterprise architectures. The student should:
- Be able to institutionalize EAM in organizations.
- Be able to evaluate the consistency, fit, and effectiveness of EAM initiatives in organizations.
- Be able to individually and in teams manage the EA in organizations.

Performance Management is the ongoing process of setting objectives and assessing individual and collective behavior and achievements during a finite period of time. The performance management process goes from the macro level (e.g. organizational strategy) to the micro levels (e.g. individual performance improvements), and can be considered to be a four strep process at the employee level. First, identifying and measuring employee performance, secondly, diagnosing strengths and possible problems in individual and team performance (e.g. gap analysis). Thirdly it requires giving performance feedback, and finally it requires active steps to strengthen or improve individual or team performance. Performance management is then primarily about measuring and counseling/giving feedback on ways to improve performance at an individual and team level, and the quality of work relationship. Performance improvement results from people being clear about organizational priorities and objectives and ability to tie that knowledge in with their individual and team priorities and objectives. They are further clear on what skills need to be enhanced, and which types of behavior can help to the end of reaching those priorities and objectives. This comes from open, positive, and constructive discussion between supervisors, individuals and teams, and agreement on how to focus on doing the job better. In the appraisal process, a manager evaluates, coaches, counsels, and develops subordinates on a continuing basis throughout the reporting period, usually one year. The class further focuses on several factors that can influence the process, such as rater errors in performance measurement, electronic monitoring of performance, structured performance improvement programs, and how managers coaching, and counseling skills can be improved.
Námsmarkmið
Knowledge The student should: K1: Understand the role of performance management in organizational strategy and management and the relationship between organizational objectives and performance management K2: Understand key concepts, models, theories, measures, and interventions in the context of performance management Skills The student should be able to: S1: Evaluate key concepts, models, and theories in the context of motivation & performance management S2: Diagnose performance problems, reasons for employee poor performance and/or absence and identify a range of managerial interventions S3: Support own reasoning in project outcomes by good use of established knowledge base in the subject areas of performance management Competences The student should: C1: Actively show established ability, both written and verbally, through group projects where the emphasis is on the student’s ability to judge, argue, decide, devise, discriminate, plan and predict from the material presented or collected.
