- Controlling and Accounting

The basics of international companies and the development of new business areas and innovations are also taught. Students gain their first practical experience during the practical semester, which is scheduled for the 5th semester. The practical semester serves to apply and deepen the knowledge and skills acquired during the theoretical studies by working on challenging business tasks. The Bachelor's thesis, which is typically written together with a company, concludes the course.
