The financial crisis of 2008 has partially originated from poorly regulated, risky financial instruments. To avoid such crises in the future, financial and regulatory institutions need experts trained in both accounting and finance.
Other than for the difficult task of regulating financial markets, knowledge taught in this program is of great importance in several fields of business that rely on risk management and an understanding of how incentives determine managers’ behavior in both financial and non-financial firms. However, the scope of the program reaches far beyond the limits of these two fields of business.
Students at the University of Tübingen who enroll in this Accounting and Finance program may specialize in either of these fields through advanced field courses or alternatively choose a more balanced portfolio of courses in both fields including courses focusing more on institutional aspects pertaining to Corporate Governance and Auditing. Importantly, the program includes theory and application of empirical methods as employed in the practice of Empirical Banking or in institutions aiming at international financial stability.
