“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.
