BI Alumni Forum Zurich: How Financing Shapes Project Strategy

We are delighted to invite you to this latest networking event in Zurich. Guest speaker Terje Gaustad will explain how financing shapes project strategy, with illustrations from film financing.

At this alumni event Associate Professor Terje Gaustad will present a chapter from a forthcoming handbook on film financing (published by Springer Verlag) where he examines the contractual relationships between investors and producers and analyzes how these relationships affect the formation and implementation of a single film project strategy.

Dr. Terje Gaustad is an Adjunct Associate Professor at BI Norwegian Business School. He holds a PhD in Strategic Management from BI and an M.A. in Communication Management from the University of Southern California. His main research interests are in institutional and organizational economics applied to the entertainment industries, and his professional entertainment industry background includes production credits for feature films such as the British comedies “Save Angel Hope” (2007) and “Nasty Neighbours” (1999).

The presentation will be followed by a networking reception at Atelier Bar where refreshments and appetizers will be served.

Hosting this event is Hilde Spæren, Alumni Relations Manager at BI Norwegian Business School.

We hope you take this opportunity to meet fellow alumni who are working and living in Switzerland.
