Financial Controller

The financial controller plays an active role in monitoring corporate objectives and improving business processes. Information provision is a key item here; financially but especially also in the non-financial field.

It is important to recognize the correct processes that form the basis for the steering information to be delivered. To gain insight into this, it is important to have knowledge of the various management areas and to understand the mutual cohesion. This post-bachelor financial controller course takes you into this thinking process.

You will also be trained in your own field. The focus is then on complicated integrated issues that play a higher role in an organization.

The Post-graduate for the financial controller covers all first-year courses for the Master Finance and Control. It’s a stand-alone programme covering all financial subjects. After completion you can start the second year of the Master finance and Control and earn a Master’s degree. This is an ideal programme if a full two-year master course seems daunting.

You have already completed a financial-economic education at bachelor or academic level when you start the post-bachelor Financial Controller program. You also have at least three years of relevant work experience. Of course you have the ambition to develop your skills.
