All management technologies and theories are intended for use in communicating financial events in the organisation, influencing decisions on resource allocation, and improving insight and feedback to the management of the organisation.

The programme applies a variety of teaching methods and types of evaluation. Students can expect traditional lectures, lectures with group exercises, and lectures dedicated to casework. AU encourages and expects student participation because those who work are those who learn.
An internship during the third semester is also recommended. This gives students the chance to experience and address some of the theoretical problems discussed during the first and second semester. This creates an appetite for more theory and is the foundation for writing a solid thesis.
