About

Besides the metropolitan ambience of the capital, guaranteeing a comfortable lifestyle complying with all of the students’ demands in a colorful city, the FACTS-Master’s program in Berlin provides many advantages for a successful career entry due, above all, to the presence of relevant companies and important institutions:

For instance, the Chamber of Public Auditors (Wirtschaftsprüferkammer), the German Chamber of Tax Consultants (Bundessteuerberaterkammer), the German Ministry of Finance (Bundesfinanzministerium), and the Accounting Standards Committee of Germany (Deutsches Rechnungslegungs Standards Committee) have their headquarters in Berlin.

Leading auditing and tax consultancy companies - throughout Germany as well as internationally -, such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, or Deloitte, maintain central offices in the German capital. Moreover, KPMG and RöverBrönner have their headquarters here.

It is the various presentations of the Dahlem Lectures on FACTS and also the immediate integration of practitioners into the lecture program that facilitate the establishment of contacts between students and professionals throughout the course of studies.
