Risk Manager: There are always certain risks associated with major business decisions. Your job as a Risk Manager is analysing these risks. For example, if you work in a bank, you need to assess credit risks before making a loan decision. For mergers and acquisitions, you must examine whether they will result in the desired outcomes. And if a company wants to bring a new product to market, a detailed analysis of competition and financial risks is extremely important. Regardless of the specific business field, your goal is always to identify and evaluate potential risks and to develop scenarios to avoid them so you can avert future damage to the company. 

Financial Controller: Controllers are responsible for measuring the profitability of the entire company using KPI systems. Based on such measurements, they must identify risks, weaknesses and potential for improvement in the company, but also identify opportunities to develop and evaluate solution concepts, often together with specialist departments. Controllers are also in high demand for implementation: They record and evaluate implementation progress and success centrally and proposes adaptation measures as necessary. 

Compliance Officer: As a Compliance Officer, you have a controlling and supervisory function within a company. You are responsible for developing an organisational structure in which employees can comply with legal regulations. You introduce control mechanisms through which violations of these regulations can be detected. And you inform employees about legal requirements and provide training in this area.
