The degree program
The severe environmental changes that can be generally described with the keyword "Basel III", lead to re-orientation in the corporate management. The stronger emphasis and observation of the risk idea, connection to a stronger merger of the areas of controlling and risk management in companies, are outward signs for this. This also takes into consideration the increased financial key figures and the corresponding control instruments.
The Master's degree program in "Controlling and risk management" reacts to such changed requirements in the labour market and offers students a customisable profile of five controlling and five risk management modules:
Management Control (3 out of 5):
- M03: Operative Management Control
- M04: Strategic Control System
- M05: Value Creation Management
- M06: Decision Management
- M07: Corporate Governance, Valuation & Transactions
Risk Management (3 out of 5):
- M09: Treasury Management
- M10: Market Price Risk Management
- M11: Risk Management in Banks
- M12: Enterprise Risk Management
- M13: Digital Financial Markets
- M14: Sustainability Management
The program is completed by an economic specialization module and an elective area in which, among others, lectures from the area of business information systems can be chosen.
Professional areas are available in financial and risk management as well as in treasury, accounting, corporate finance and controlling of companies with all of its facets (e.g. marketing, production, logistics and finance controlling), in banks and in corporate consulting.

Examination regulations/degree plan/module
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
