Corso di Perfezionamento - Corso di preparazione alla professione di dottore commercialista e all'attività di revisore legale
Il Corso si propone di favorire l’acquisizione di competenze strumentali ad affrontare i problemi più rilevanti che si incontrano nella pratica professionale di dottore commercialista e di revisore legale, sia in studi grandi sia in studi di piccolo-media dimensione, anche innestando – su una solida base teorica e sulle predette abilità di tipo tecnico-operativo – il contributo di qualificati professionisti del settore, funzionali a far cogliere il rilievo professionale dei problemi affrontati. I partecipanti potranno quindi essere validamente inseriti in uno studio professionale avviato di dottore commercialista e di revisore legale.
 
OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI
 
L’obiettivo del Corso è di preparare alla professione del dottore commercialista e all’attività di revisore legale e mediatamente di fornire il più ampio spettro di formazione per il superamento degli esami di Stato. Relativamente a questi ultimi, l’esperienza insegna che gli insegnamenti teorici praticati nei Corsi a ciò votati richiedono utilmente di essere integrati di temi professionali e contributi esperienziali ulteriori rispetto al tirocinio.

Corso di Perfezionamento in Frodi Aziendali: individuazione, contrasto e prevenzione
La figura professionale obiettivo del Corso (fraud examiner) possiede una conoscenza a tutto tondo delle diverse tipologie di frodi, dei loro schemi di realizzazione e del loro rilevamento. Si tratta di una figura professionale di recente diffusione in Italia, sia in campo libero professionale che aziendale e che trova un riconoscimento internazionale nella certificazione di FRAUD EXAMINER americana. Tale certificazione richiede il superamento di uno specifico test di ammissione internazionale organizzato da ACFE (USA).
Ad oggi la figura del FRAUD EXAMINER, almeno in Italia, è ancora in fase embrionale, iniziandosi a diffondere nel contesto delle grandi imprese e delle società bancarie o assicurative.
Le conoscenze del fraud examiner vengono quindi ad essere spesso inserite nel contesto di attività di altri profili professionali, che così facendo vengono ad arricchire il proprio bagaglio di conoscenze. Si tratta di:
  1. Internal auditors, addetto alla compliance aziendale, responsabile anti-frode;
  2. Addetti al controllo contabile;
  3. Controllers aziendali;
  4. Membri del collegio sindacale nelle società;
  5. Responsabili anticorruzione nelle amministrazioni pubbliche L. 190/2012;
  6. Consulenti legali o societari;
  7. Managers od executives di qualunque funzione aziendale che, in virtù delle loro responsabilità di controllo e di gestione di risorse, ritengano di dover approfondire le proprie conoscenze circa metodologie di prevenzione e contrasto alle frodi.
Il Corso, per i suoi contenuti e la sua struttura, offre una preparazione adeguata e sufficiente per il conseguimento della certificazione internazionale CFE.
 
OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI
 
Il Corso Frodi intende formare figure professionali con elevata qualificazione in tema frodi, fornendo adeguati strumenti e competenze nell'individuazione, nella prevenzione e risoluzione delle principali frodi aziendali. Date queste premesse, l’obiettivo formativo si ritiene debba essere perseguito attraverso l’approfondimento delle seguenti tematiche:
  1. Etica, frodi e prevenzione;
  2. Rilevazioni contabili e schemi di frode;
  3. Frodi e diritto;
  4. Tecniche di investigazione;
  5. Anticorruzione e compliance programs;
  6. Le frodi in specifici settori;
  7. Certificazione internazionale CFE.
Si tratta di tematiche sufficientemente varie e trasversali all’azienda che toccano vari aspetti della gestione aziendale, coinvolgendo differenti settori scientifico disciplinari di insegnamento. Per maggiori informazioni www.fraumaster.it

University Masters in Wine Production and International Competition” (IVeCI)(1st level) Course partially running (all years except the first)
The structure of the international wine market has greatly diversified recently, changing the geography of wine production significantly from the point of view of demand and supply.
The main factors of change can be described as follows:
a) the development of new consumer areas (such as south-east Asia, Australia, North America, Northern Europe)
b) the numerical stagnation of demand in the traditional producer countries
c) the affirmation of new consumer models and behaviours
d) the intensification of exchanges between countries and macro geographic areas
e) the powerful entry into the international market of new competitor countries especially in the “basic” and “premium” wine sectors
f) the evolution of international wine production policies and regulations.
These changes present new and more uncertain competitive scenarios to wine producers which require a significant degree of strategic and organisational adaptation.
The “Masters in Wine Production and International Competition” (IVeCI) is set in this context and aims to train middle level managers for companies operating in the wine-producing sector with a high level of competence in the management of relations with the international market.

Smart Energy Management: Managing energy efficiency in companies Course not running
Energy management in companies or factories requires an ever-increasing array of multidisiplinary expertise spanning different branches of engineering, economics and business management. Participants of the course will gain knowledge and skills for this professional role. They will learn to identify and evaluate opportunities for energy efficiency to be implemented in their own busines or organisation. In this context, smart energy managers must be familiar with regulations, alongside techniques for assessing the implementation of potential energy efficient measures. They must therefore know different techniques for achieving energy efficiency and be able to choose which may be most suitable and which may not be technically feasible in a given situation. At the same time, it is necessary to know how to evaluate the various options using comparative analyses, which must be based on economic tools and business management. Although it seems ambitious, the education and training for this dicotomous "technical-economic" professional role would fill a gap in university education, which traditionally focuses on either one discipline or the other.
