Abstract: Let $ \Lambda $ be an artin algebra $ \mathfrak{A}$ and a two-sided ideal of $ \Lambda $. Then $ \mathfrak{A}$ is the trace of a projective $ \Lambda $-module $ P$ in $ \Lambda $. We study how the homological properties of the categories of finitely generated modules over the three rings $ \Lambda /\mathfrak{A}$, $ \Lambda $ and the endomorphism ring of $ P$ are related. We give some applications of the ideas developed in the paper to the study of quasi-hereditary algebras.
