Master Controlling (MSc) program at TIAS
The Master Controlling (MSc) consists of nine modules that combine to form a solid academic foundation. You learn all about the importance of financial information to organizations. Ample time is also devoted to professional skills and competencies. Instead of being addressed separately, these are integrated into the various content modules. Numerous real-life case studies, presentation assignments and professional ethical dilemmas challenge you to put your acquired knowledge into immediate practice. Your master concludes with a final thesis during which you apply what you have learned to a management control issue at your own organization.
Structure of the part-time Master Controlling (MSc)
The Master Controlling (MSc) consists of the following modules:
Accounting Information Systems & Data Analytics
The establishment of relevant, reliable information provision is the foundation of your organization. Learn how to use reliable information to improve internal control.
Strategy & Organization
While financial controllers don’t draw up strategic plans themselves, they still need to understand strategists’ thought processes and know how to ensure that goals are achieved. That is taught in this module.
Management Accounting & Control
Accounting information can be used to support decisions and measure whether an organization is achieving its goals periodically.
When organizations make investment and finance decisions, they also deal with financial risks. Financial controllers know ways to measure and mitigate these risks.
Business Research Methods 2
Explore how organizations can use research to solve practical problems and learn to critically review your own and others’ research.
Financial Accounting & Reporting
External reporting is bound by legislation, standard setting, regulations and audits, and largely based on information prepared by financial controllers.
Financial controllers must know which legal entities are possible, as the choice for a specific entity can facilitate the achievement of goals and mitigate certain risks.
Marketing & Pricing
For an organization to increase its profitability, both cost structure and revenue require careful attention.
A financial controller is responsible for ensuring controlled operating, financial and tax cash flows. That means it is important to have a working knowledge of tax law.
