Linking education to research and career preparation
The master Accountancy & Controlling focuses on both practically-oriented and academic research. On the one hand, you will become familiar with the outcomes of research in the fields of audit quality, management control, internal control, IT, financial reporting and corporate governance. On the other hand, you will perform practically-oriented assignments as well as research assignments yourself, which will help you to develop your academic skills.
The team of lecturers is a mix of practitioners and active researchers. Their research projects – often in collaboration with external parties – are focusing on: integrated reporting, voluntary disclosure, Corporate Social Responsibility, risk management, the role of controllers, board composition and more.
