Why MACFin

Our programme is characterised by its proximity to entrepreneurial practice: topical and relevant issues with case-related approaches to solutions play as important a role as do reputed guest lecturers and close cooperation with selected companies.

The Master’s Programme in Accounting and Corporate Finance (MACFin) prepares you for responsible activities in the field of financial corporate management. No matter whether you look at it from the perspective of a consultant, a controller, an auditor or a banker:

  • you analyse an organisation’s sustainable financial and earning power and issue recommendations for further development;
  • you deal with the requirements imposed by the capital market and the regulators;
  • you utilise new technologies in order to transform the finance function;
  • you create M&A processes;
  • you conduct a value-oriented assessment of the profitability of customers, distribution channels and brands, as well as drawing up alternative action scenarios;
  • you conduct management performance assessments and create incentive-compatible management instruments.

Financial management thus includes a systematic and reliable record of corporate performance, as well as reporting for the attention of investors and other stakeholders.
