Guest lecture with the head of strategic finance at Roche

Maik Rutschmann, Head of Strategic Finance at Roche, is joining one of our lectures as a guest speaker. As Head of Strategic Finance at Roche, Mr. Rutschmann plays a major role in making critical decisions at Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world. The revenue of Roche exceeds $65 Billion, and its market capitalization is $294 Billion. 

Very seldom one has a chance to meet such senior executives. At large companies like Roche, it could be the case that you work your entire life there and don’t have such a chance.
