Welcome to the website of the Finance, Accounting, Controlling & Taxation cluster!

“What can I expect?” – focus of the cluster

In the Finance, Accounting, Controlling & Taxation cluster (“FACT” for short), you will be dealing with different topics, among other things, with the following interesting issues: “How do opportunities and risks affect company value?”, “How do international corporations function?”, “How can a company’s tax burden be optimized?”, “How can financial crises be predicted and counteracted?”. Different techniques and methods are learned so that you can answer these and other questions. A detailed overview of all the cluster’s subareas is available here.

“What can I learn?” – theory and practice

The FACT cluster teaches competencies in business management methods of securities analysis, business valuation and rating as well as in the assessment of different forms of financing and financial products – particularly with regard to taxation. Apart from teaching theoretical content, as well as mathematical and statistical methods, in our lectures, we offer application-oriented seminars, in which the theoretical knowledge is implemented practically. In this way, students receive a comprehensive education in finance, reporting, and taxation.

“And then...?” – career prospects

After you have completed your degree in the FACT cluster, depending on the focus you opted for and your interests, diverse professional and career opportunities are open to you in different sectors of industry. In particular, graduates find themselves working in the areas of Management Accounting, Auditing, Tax Consulting, Consulting, Accounting or in Finance and Banking.
