The Institute of Management Accounting and Control of WHU is a leading think tank in the area of management accounting and control. Under the joint directorship of Professor Dr. Utz Schäffer and Professor Dr. Jürgen Weber, the Institute bundles the numerous activities of the associated professors, doctoral students and other staff members in research, teaching, and business engagement.
In our research, we want to learn about the counterpart role in the finance function (i.e. the role of CFOs, controllers and financial directors) as part of organized learning and critique. In our teaching, we want to contribute to the education of responsible leaders in the finance function and beyond. Finally, in our engagement with business, we serve by accompanying the transformation of the finance function and the development of the profession of controllers. The underlying duality of scholarly and practice impact is part of our vocation.
