  • What to expect?

    The master specialization in Finance, Accounting, Controlling und Taxation (FACT) at the WFI provides outstanding opportunities for an excellent course of studies. Students earn the degree “Master of Science” after 4 semesters of studies and a workload of 120 ECTS.

    Overall aim

    The specialization FACT offers intensive business studies in the field of Finance, Accounting, Controlling, Taxation and Business Law (FACT). The master course provides scientific knowledge and methods that are necessary in financial management, but difficult to acquire on the job. Thus, the master specialization enables students to secure a long-standing competitive edge over future competitors. As students are at liberty to choose from different subjects and elective modules, they can build an individualized study program adjusted to their own interests and plans for the future.

    In addition, students have the opportunity to spend up to two semesters abroad and gain experience in an international environment, which is highly relevant in the transnational financial sector. With more than 90 partner universities worldwide, WFI offers its students the best conditions for a semester abroad. Moreover, the University is a member of ISEP, an exchange network of more than 300 universities in more than 50 countries, which allows WFI students to choose from a wide range of additional options when planning a semester abroad.


    The academic and research world and the daily practices are closely linked in the financial sector. After successfully completing their studies, students will be able to apply prevalent capital-market oriented models and quantitative methods. Modules cover a wide range of subjects from finance, accounting, controlling, taxation and business law.

    Due to the excellent lecturer-student ratio at WFI, modules are highly interactive and students can adapt their studies to their own interests. Students can specialize, for instance, on empirical capital market research, risk assessment and risk management, company taxation, accounting and controlling or insolvency law.
