Are you able to think critically and are you a team player? Do you have a general interest in how business works? Do you have a background in quantitative reasoning? Then the specialisation in Controlling could be right for you. The specialisation is part of the master's programme in International Business and is for students interested in decision-making, overall business management and the provision of relevant information for internal decisions. Controllers are often referred as the navigators of a firm, engaging in the gathering, interpretation and support of decisions throughout an organisation. Controlling is about the ‘people side’ of numbers, focusing specifically on management and control rather than auditing, assurance or accountancy alone. Come join the IB/Controlling programme and place yourself at the nexus of management, accounting and big business decisions.
