Your studies in Business Administration - Accounting and Controlling are opening a whole new range of opportunities for you and your career. Be ready to make an impact and to work in an industry as diverse as your learned skills. 

Financial Accounting Manager

As an accountant or bookkeeper, you work in accounting for companies or banks. You create invoices, check incoming payments, and document financial data and assets. You advise the management on financial issues to help increase the company’s success. Unlike controlling, accounting is not about cost optimisation but about documenting real postings and values. A distinction is made in large companies between external or financial accounting and internal or payroll accounting.

Business Controller

Tougher competition among companies is increasing cost pressure making it crucial to understand where your company is making or burning money. As a business controller, you try to determine how to increase a company’s performance. Your work includes evaluation of data, comparison of targets and the current situation, and preparation of budgets and forecasts to get a “glimpse into the future”. You work closely with other departments and management and offer advice on how to achieve the company’s goals.   

Production Controller

Controllers truly embrace their modern role as management consultants in technical areas. Traditional business management, especially financial management, is often not primarily focused on production given the numerous technical issues involved. As a controller in a technical area, you are always aware of the special features that this area involves. This means you are ready to immerse yourself in the way technology thinks and acts and actively engage with its problems.
