Career opportunities

  • Experts in accounting, finance and controllership are in high demand. Studies indicate that graduates can expect to earn high incomes.
  • Graduates frequently find gainful employment in the department of a conpany's Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In order to prepare them for these functions, the programme concept is very practice and application oriented, which gives graduates a distinct advantage over graduates from traditional universities where less emphasis is placed on practice. This job-oriented approach thus gives our graduates a competitive edge when applying for employment in business enterprises.
  • Our Master s programme opens up career opportunities in commercial departments in all industrial sectors (e.g. accounting, financing, controllership, project and risk management, mergers and acquisitions), banking and the insurance industry, consulting, auditing, the police force (white collar crime), public service and non-profit organisations.
