Controlling & Business Management

Plan success, design processes, achieve results

Globalization, international competitive pressure, and the increasing interconnectedness of modern businesses present a growing challenge to the efficiency of management control systems. The critical success factor in modern management control is integration: the integration of markets, processes, and values. The role of the management accountant today is to act as a corporate consultant supporting the management of a business or exercising specific management responsibilities. He or she combines expert knowledge and methodological competence with social skills.

The aim of this innovative program is to develop a holistic concept of the management accounting and control system. A particular focus is placed on improving your company’s performance and financial position.

Upon completion of the program, you will have

  • developed a thorough understanding of management control and its practical implementation,
  • understood the development of internal and external demands on the management control system,
  • acquired state-of-the-art methods and tools to adequately master new challenges of your profession,
  • created a personal management control concept as part of your final project, and be able to immediately apply this in your company.

The part-time program is designed for entrepreneurs, managers, and future decision makers looking to increase the professionalism of their control approach or to expand their expertise in modern management accounting and control.

This course is particularly appropriate for entrepreneurs and employees in small and medium-sized businesses who intend to install a management control system in their company or purposefully expand and systemize an existing control system.
