Masters of Arts in Business Studies. Master’s Programme in Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) Why MAccFin The Master’s Programme in Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) enables you to view financial corporate management from an integrative perspective. 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 MAccFin programme thus creates optimal conditions for a successful career start. Objectives The Master’s Programme in Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) 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 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. Student profile Would you like to guide a company’s future development with sustainable success? Would you like to underpin its strategic growth opportunities with key figures and thus hone your arguments? Then you fit our target group excellently. As a MAccFin student, you have a great interest in issues of financial management from a CFO’s point of view. Your academic and practical curiosity puts you in a position not only to become acquainted with concepts in a theoretical manner but to scrutinise them, assess them autonomously and adapt them to fit the context. Simultaneously with your education in this field, you further develop your analytical and communicative skills. In this way, you will be prepared to assume responsibility in leading positions in a complex and risky environment in the future. Career outlook We would like to provide you with the wherewithal for an exciting and unique career. As a MAccFin graduate, you will not only have the necessary theoretical foundation but also be conversant with practice-oriented project work, positioning and opinion-leadership, as well as being involved in the production of solutions and decisions. MAccFin graduates find themselves in responsible positions in big and smaller corporations, on all continents, with responsibility in line functions, project management or consultancy, and as entrepreneurs. Typically, our graduates opt for business consultancy, investment banking, auditing (MAccFin ECTS credits will be credited to your auditor training) or a junior position in the finance department of a reputable firm. These starting positions are used as a stepping stone for growth with regard to functions, competence, responsibility, projects and leadership. Alternatively you can remain at university and opt for a doctorate and thus for further specialization in your field in order to embark on an academic career. MAccFin Curriculum The contents of the Master’s programme focus on the current and future tasks of financial management. Increasing demands for transparent and real-time information about current and planned activities and the financial results expected from them require a very good specialist interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to create and implement systems. Now all the compulsory courses are taught both in German and in English; the language can be chosen separately for each individual course. The three compulsory courses of the first semester provide a crosssection of financial management. The Auditing course shows the principles and rules according to which auditors conceptualise and conduct a group audit. Corporate Finance deals with models of corporate funding structures, whereas Management Accounting raises and discusses questions of corporate planning, steering and control. In the second semester, the Financial Analysis course focuses on instruments of financial analysis, as well as their critical assessment and their application in keeping with the context, while Financial Reporting according to the True & Fair View is concerned with the external perspective. In core electives you will be able to choose from a great number of courses. The general core electives should cover the bandwidth of financial management through the choice of four courses, whereas in the immersion core electives, two extensive courses are intended to enable students to specialise and thus to prepare them for their career starts. Students are therefore able to pursue their very own individual requirements and interests. About one in three courses is offered in English. Exchange We support you in the international orientation of your studies. Thus you can apply for the double degree programmes CEMS MIM or DM2. In addition, you will be able to spend an exchange semester at one of our more than 190 partner universities.
