Target group

The Master's degree programme in Controlling (full-time) is aimed at prospective students who wish to qualify for demanding specialist and management tasks in Controlling. In addition to the basics of controlling, the course also teaches distinctive skills in strategic and operative corporate management, the interaction between controlling and financial accounting, and the IT knowledge required for this. Controllers take on different roles in everyday working life: They are presenters, advisors, coordinators and sometimes also controllers. In order to do justice to these roles, the programme not only trains professional and methodological competence, but also promotes personal and social competence through seminars and presentations.
