Keeping all the numbers on track
In finance and accounting, necessary capital is procured, investment volumes are determined, risks are assessed, and individual revenue streams are allocated to their respective positions in accordance with legal requirements. The tasks of business graduates in external accounting include balance sheet policy and company valuation. Standard, partial and process cost accounting, target costing and cost management, on the other hand, are the responsibility of internal accounting, which is monitored by the Controlling department using key performance indicator systems. Through finance, tax consulting and auditing, some business graduates find their way to self-employment, or to large and medium-sized management consultancies or auditing firms.
