comment by a CEO presents some of the core themes of Investor
Relations, positioning it in the area of strategic management:
Geraint Anderson, CEO of TT electronics plc:
“You must have regular dialogue with investors and analysts to build trust and credibility. You need, first of all, for the investors to understand your strategy and then you need to build their confidence as you execute that strategy. You need also to be very clear in setting the expectations as you will always be judged on what you said you will do. So, good news or bad, it’s the same as long as it’s in line with the strategy and expectations you have set. (http://www.criticaleye.com/archive.cfm?id=332 )And this feedback (direct quatations) from the students of the IR course in Spring 2018 describes the course from the point of view of student's learning experience:
selected articles supported very well my learning and widened my perspective on
the course themes nicely. The exit slip assignments forced me to really think
analytically, and taught me to combine knowledge from different sources.
Difficult but really efficient assignment!”
“One of the most insightful courses I've
had during my master’s studies.” And: “Great course overall!!”
