Close and intensive contact between science and practice is of great importance for our research and teaching while offering multiple advantages to all parties:

  • Companies are sensitised to new developments and come into contact with students.
  • Students learn about practical issues and solutions while meeting potential future employers.
  • The chair gains ideas for research questions that are relevant to practice.

Through participation in scientific fora, such as for example the Working Committee on Management Accounting of Schmalenbach-Gesellschaft, we promote the transfer of research results into practice and actively support current developments in controlling and in accounting.

We offer companies diverse opportunities for cooperation, for example:

  • guest lectures (in German) by company representatives,
  • workshops and case study seminars for students (in German),
  • practical master theses, addressing a specific issue of the company,
  • joint research projects,
  • publication of job advertisements (in German) for internships and permanent employment on our website.

Special corporate partnerships do exist with a number of companies. These companies actively promote our research and teaching. We currently cooperate with the following corporate partnes:
