Mannheim Master in Management: Specialization in Accounting & Taxation

A specialization in accounting and taxation within the Mannheim Master in Management program offers great opportunities for a successful international career in financial management, advisory services, strategy or M&A consulting, banking, and auditing. Many industry leaders and chief executives (CFOs and CEOs) have a strong background in accounting and taxation because solid knowledge in these fields is a prerequisite for successful management. But we also prepare our students excellently for an academic career in research. In fact, many business professors in German-speaking countries (and even internationally) received their academic training in Mannheim’s Area Accounting & Taxation

The Area offers a large number of courses that MMM students can choose as electives. There is a wide range of both high-level introductory courses and highly specialized field courses. 

The accounting program is organized around five main fields of study: German GAAP, International Accounting (IFRS), Group Accounting, Financial Statement Analysis and Managerial Accounting. There is a core module for each field and, in addition, students can elect more specialized courses that build on these fundamentals.

The tax program can be excellently interwoven with the Tax Law module that the Law School at the University of Mannheim offers. All courses offer a combination of relevant insights from recent academic research and practical application. Many of our adjunct professors and guest lecturers are business leaders who bring their outstanding practical experience into the classroom and enrich our curriculum. Needless to say that our courses are held in English (unless we deal with the very specifics of German law).
