Teaching programme and job perspectives


For Master students of "Accounting and Auditing" the concerted courses provide a comprehensive and widespread training concept.

The Master's programme builds up on the skills in accounting and auditing already acquired during the Bachelor program.
Although a focus on the major subject “Accounting and Auditing” in the Bachelor is not mandatory, it is recommended due to the assumed knowledge. For this purpose, "International Accounting I and II" and "Auditing II" will be offered regularly.

The training in this main subject serves the professional development and specialization, whereby the focus is placed on a research-oriented work. The graduate students will be prepared for careers in the areas of corporate finance and accounting, auditing, corporate and tax consulting, as well as for scientific work at a university.

More information


In the Master course you can choose between one or two major subjects. In total there are provided at least 56 credit points of the areas of management/economics and the major subject.
When choosing one major subject students have to provide at least 21 credit points of the areas of  management/economics and at least 35 credit points of the area of the major subject.
 
When choosing two major subjects, there are at least 14 credit points of the area of management/economics and a total of 42 credit points from the area of the major subjects required.
In addition there are 18 credit points in each major subject required.

As you can see in the sample of a curriculum, you can achieve this by different combinations of major subjects. Each of the areas offered (Economics, Computer Science, Finance, Controlling and Insurance) represents a good addition to the major subject Accounting and Auditing. You can also choose Accounting and Auditing as the only major subject, for which you therefore have to provide 35 credit points.
In addition to the lectures a sufficient number of seminars will be offered in the area of Accounting and Auditing.
