The chair of managerial accounting and control focuses in research and teaching on defining and implementing cost accounting instruments as well as management control systems. With regard to teaching, we aspire to combine theoretical and practical aspects. Within the bachelor courses “Unternehmensrechnung” and “Controlling” students are thought the basics in cost accounting and management control together with first deep dives on several topics. Next to two regular courses in managerial accounting, students on the master level have the possibility to attend a practical oriented project seminar as well as a theoretical oriented research seminar.
Within research, we work together with national and international research partners on the further enhancement of our field of expertise.
The head of the chair is Prof. Dr. Michael Burkert, who was appointed in 2013 as full professor at the University of Fribourg.
