    GUIDE TO ANALYSING COMPANIES

    The aim of this book is to provide an understanding of how to analyse and assess the performance of a company from the information provided about it. Financial analysis is as much an art as it is a science. Combine any two figures from an annual report and a ratio is produced; the real skill is in deciding which figures to use, where to find them and how to judge the result.

     Conducting Transatlantic Business Basic Legal Distinctions in the US and Europe

    The laws of continental Europe and those of the USA are substantially distinct. The general difference between common law, as practiced in the US, and civil law, as practiced in continental Europe, is widely accepted, even if it is not always fully understood.

    Law for the Business Student

     Project Management

    It was just a few decades ago, in the 1950s, that modern project management was first seen as an individual subject within the area of economic sciences. Centuries back, so-called “projects” were finished successfully, e.g. the building of the aqueducts in Roman times or the construction of the Great Wall in China, but these projects were managed more on an ad-hoc basis mostly using informal techniques and tools.
