As a business manager, you are responsible for monitoring all departments within a company and developing industry-specific solutions to increase sales and attract new customers. From an economic point of view, you prepare financial plans and check the efficiency of projects. In large companies, as a business manager, you report directly to the board of directors and convince them with a high level of competence in consulting. In smaller companies, you can often make decisions independently and report to the management. Generally, your role as a business manager goes hand in hand with personnel responsibility.


As an assistant accountant, you work in finance and accounting - typically at a bank, an accounting firm or in the finance department of a company. You are responsible for bookkeeping, preparing financial plans and reports and performing administrative tasks. You are familiar with the company's internal guidelines and regulations related to the recording of financial data and you maintain the databases accordingly.


In your position as a business developer, you are responsible for the further development and expansion of a company's business areas. As a key driver of growth and innovation, you are committed to the forward-looking orientation of your organisation. In doing so, you pursue the essential growth strategies within the framework of market development, product development and diversification.
