Careers

Your MBA in Finance & Accounting career outlook

Having completed the MBA – Finance & Accounting, you’ll be a sought-after finance expert on the international market.

Once you’ve completed your degree, you could work as...

Risk Manager

As a risk manager, your job is to analyse business decisions with regard to their risks for the company. At a bank, for example, this means assessing the credit default risk before a lending decision is made. In the case of takeovers or mergers, you check whether they will actually result in the desired potential. And if a new product is to be launched on the market, you are responsible for a detailed competitive analysis. Your goal is always to identify and analyse potential risks and develop scenarios to minimise risks.

Financial Controller

As a financial controller, your job is to measure the profitability of a company using key performance indicators. You uncover weaknesses, risks, and potential for improvement in the company and develop efficient solution concepts - often in cooperation with the specialist departments. If these concepts are implemented, you are responsible for the central recording and evaluation of the implementation progress and success and, if necessary, initiate adjustment measures.

Compliance Officer

Compliance officers have a controlling and supervisory function in companies. Your goal is to develop an organisational structure in which all employees can comply with legal regulations. You regularly inform employees about legal regulations and internal guidelines and initiate training in this area. You introduce adequate control mechanisms so that violations of regulations can be identified.
