Course content

Management accounting – also known as management control – is one of the classical and most fundamental aspects of business administration. We aim at developing management technologies and test theories within production, reporting, analysis and managerial use of financial as well as non-financial information that can:

  • Be used for communicating financial events in the organisation;
  • Influence decisions on resource allocation;
  • Influence the management of the organisation and improve the insight and feedback.


The programme provides you with in-depth knowledge of

  • the classical foundation of management accounting;
  • the use and application of information technology; and
  • the development of modern management accounting practices.


The Management Accounting and Controlling programme provides you with professional qualifications and competences that mirror and sum up the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired through the prerequisite courses, specialisation courses and electives. The main objective of the programme is to convey professional qualifications and competencies which you can apply in your professional life and in your future career no matter where you choose to live and work.
