The admission is limited.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Further information about admission requirements can be found on the program's website.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The master’s program in finance, accounting, and taxation, or FACTS, offers academically based, application-oriented in-depth studies in the areas of finance, accounting (financial accounting, managerial accounting or auditing), taxation, and supplements (especially law and related fields in business economics). Besides the possibility of completing a doctoral dissertation, the FACTS program opens many opportunities for gaining employment in industrial, auditing or consulting companies or institutions.
