About the program

The Master of Science in Finance & Control is designed for the manager with a financial and economic education who functions on a policy-making position. The objective of this training is twofold. On the one hand, the deepening of financial knowledge and, on the other hand, the broadening of business management and strategy. The focus is on complicated and integrated issues that occur at the higher level of an organization.

With this Master’s degree, you move from function-oriented acting to solution-oriented thinking. You will learn to deal with problems and challenges that extend across various disciplines.

This will enable you to make the translation and connection to the board and other members of a management team. In addition, you will focus on your personal development and leadership qualities.
