Your studies in Business Administration and Tax Consulting 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.

Tax advisor auditor

If you pass the tax consultancy exam, you can work as a tax consultant. You will not only handle tax returns but also work on tax law enforcement by filing appeals to the tax office for clients or representing them in court in criminal tax matters. In addition, you will optimise the tax structure for your clients and provide consultancy on setting up companies. Since every industry and the most diverse forms of companies are subject to taxation, you will deal with very different clients and their needs. That brings diversity and variety to this job.   


After gaining some professional experience in an auditing company, you can take the auditor's exam. Afterwards, you can work as an auditor either as a freelancer or employed in a company, for example, in one of the “Big Four” (Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and PwC). As an auditor, you carry out audits of businesses. You take a close look at their annual financial statements or check their creditworthiness. Since few young people currently work as auditors, there is a growing demand for business administration experts in this field.   

Accountant or bookkeeper

As an accountant, you will work in the accounting department of a company. You will oversee all financial data and assets, advising the management, and preparing profit and loss statements and balance sheets. In contrast to a tax advisor, an accountant is not allowed to create annual financial statements, only to prepare them. As an accountant, you will also be responsible for the smooth flow of payment transactions in the company. This means that you create invoices, check incoming payments, and pay open invoices from suppliers and service providers.
