Do you have a passion for numbers and enjoy developing business management solutions?

Whether as a business, sales, or production controller, nothing will escape your scrutiny and you will know exactly how to ensure maximum business success.
Whether in part-time or full-time, the Master’s Programme in Controlling will expand your existing understanding of business administration, with a focus on success-oriented controlling and global supply chain or change management. In the process, you will learn about digital business models and strategic management approaches. You can also further improve your professional skills in the fields of communication and public relations, strategic air traffic management, or HR controlling.

Competition among companies is getting tougher, so you want to know exactly where the money is being earned or burned. As a business controller, you determine how to increase a company’s performance. Your work includes the evaluation of data, comparison of targets and the current situation, and preparation of budgets and forecasts to get a “glimpse into the future”. You will work closely with other departments and management and offer advice on how to achieve the company’s goals.
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.
As a sales controller, you optimise sales alignment and the success of your sales and your organisation. You are in the intersection between sales and controlling. Your specific tasks include customer analysis, competition assessment, market assessment, and risk assessment.
