Contents and structure
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.
The three compulsory courses of the first semester provide a cross-section of financial management. The Auditing course shows the principles and rules according to which auditors conceptualise and conduct a group audit. Corporate Finance deals with models of corporate funding structures, whereas Management Accounting raises and discusses questions of corporate planning, steering and control. In the second semester, the Financial Analysis course focuses on instruments of financial analysis, as well as their critical assessment and their application in keeping with the context, while Financial Reporting according to the True & Fair View is concerned with the external perspective.
In core electives you will be able to choose from a great number of courses. The general core electives should cover the bandwidth of financial management through the choice of four courses, whereas in the immersion core electives, two extensive courses are intended to enable students to specialise and thus to prepare them for their career starts. Students are therefore able to pursue their very own individual requirements and interests.
