About

Combining analytical skills in financial risk management with professional knowledge in internal and external accounting, the Accounting and Finance program from University of Tübingen features an integrated analytical approach to graduate education in these fields.

Overview

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 who enroll in this program may specialize in either Accounting or Finance through advanced field courses or alternatively choose a more balanced portfolio of courses in both fields. Other courses focus on institutional aspects pertaining to Corporate Governance and Auditing. Importantly, the Accounting and Finance program from University of Tübingen includes theory and application of empirical methods as employed in the practice of Empirical Banking or in institutions aiming at international financial stability.

Career prospects

Graduates have excellent career prospects across a wide range of fields in financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies, in auditing firms, management consulting, industrial firms and the public sector. They will be attractive candidates for all positions that require institutional knowledge, analytical skills and/or expertise in empirical research.
