      The aim is to ensure places are offered to those persons who complete the multi-level admission procedure with the best results. The tests are designed to assess the skills needed for a candidate's chosen profession.
    • Process
      The written admission test comprises a number of requirements needed to assess whether you possess the requisite basic requirements. Candidates who achieve the required minimum level in the written admission test will be invited to an admission interview, the second stage of the admission procedure. The admission interview will provide a first impression of your personal aptitude. This includes professional motivation, an understanding of the profession, performance, problem-solving and a capacity for careful consideration. Points are assigned to each section of the test.
    • Criteria
      The criteria for acceptance are based solely on performance. The geographical origin of the candidate has no influence on the admission decision. The admission requirements must be met in all cases. The admission committee (which comprises, among others, the head of the academic section and representatives of the teaching staff) awards places to the candidates who score highest in the tests. The process as a whole and all test and assessment results from the admission procedure are documented in a transparent and verifiable manner.

    During the studies

    Our curriculum is also based on close cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Finance. The degree program was developed together with the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Academy of tax advisors and auditors. The content reflects theoretical know-how and practical experience in the business consulting professions. Numerous experts from the Federal Government and others from chambers and companies lecture in the degree programs. In the second semester you will complete a 9-week internship and will have the opportunity to benefit from the experience gained at a position offered by the Federal Ministry of Finance in one of its tax offices. Apart from internships and study trips, you will also have the opportunity to exchange expertise with lecturers and student colleagues in financial administrations, certified public accountant chambers and accounting departments of large companies and to establish a strong personal network for your future career. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

    • Combination of tax, law and economics
    • Part-time, interdisciplinary and can be completed within the standard period of study
    • Practice-oriented: Developed together with the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Academy of Tax Advisors and Auditors

    Tax Management is the first degree program to offer an academic education specializing in tax law on a national, European and international level, globally comparable to other studies in terms of the Bologna process. The special feature of this degree program, compared to university studies such as law or economy, is that it is interdisciplinary, practice-oriented and tailored to suit. You may complete the study program part-time, in the minimum period. Cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Finance furthermore ensures a practice-oriented and cutting-edge syllabus.
    The graduate may follow one of two equivalent career paths: in public financial administration on the one hand and in tax and business consulting or accounting for large companies on the other. You will also benefit from our cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Finance should you opt for a private company career. For the more you know about the fiscal authority, the better your advice to taxable clients.

    In the degree program you will acquire professional and scientific skills in the areas of tax and law, business and auditing and also personality and interaction.

    • In tax and law, you will explore fiscal and tax law, procedural law, civil and business law and also public and community law.
    • In the field of business and auditing, you will deepen and expand your knowledge in business administration, be introduced to relevant auditing software applications and strengthen your knowledge in the field of risk analysis. You will learn about the differences between private sector and public financial systems and explore business and economic approaches as well as their application in public administration.
    • In the area of digitalization in the context of business administration and tax law, students learn about the demands placed on accounting by technological progress and e-government initiatives, design corporate accounting in line with these demands, and accompany and manage digitally driven change processes.
