The MAccFin programme thus creates optimal conditions for a successful career start. Objectives The Master’s Programme in Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) prepares you for responsible activities in the field of financial corporate management. No matter whether you look at it from the perspective of a consultant, a controller, an auditor or a banker: You analyse an organisation’s sustainable financial and earning power and issue recommendations for further development; You deal with the requirements imposed by the capital market and the regulators; You create M&A processes; You conduct a value-oriented assessment of the profitability of customers, distribution channels and brands, as well as drawing up alternative action scenarios; You conduct management performance assessments and create incentive-compatible management instruments. Financial management thus includes a systematic and reliable record of corporate performance, as well as reporting for the attention of investors and other stakeholders. Student profile Would you like to guide a company’s future development with sustainable success? Would you like to underpin its strategic growth opportunities with key figures and thus hone your arguments? Then you fit our target group excellently. As a MAccFin student, you have a great interest in issues of financial management from a CFO’s point of view. Your academic and practical curiosity puts you in a position not only to become acquainted with concepts in a theoretical manner but to scrutinise them, assess them autonomously and adapt them to fit the context. Simultaneously with your education in this field, you further develop your analytical and communicative skills. In this way, you will be prepared to assume responsibility in leading positions in a complex and risky environment in the future. Career outlook We would like to provide you with the wherewithal for an exciting and unique career.

These starting positions are used as a stepping stone for growth with regard to functions, competence, responsibility, projects and leadership. Alternatively you can remain at university and opt for a doctorate and thus for further specialization in your field in order to embark on an academic career. MAccFin Curriculum The contents of the Master’s programme focus on the current and future tasks of financial management. Increasing demands for transparent and real-time information about current and planned activities and the financial results expected from them require a very good specialist interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to create and implement systems.
