What is it?

The Business & Law in Accounting and Taxation degree program is designed to prepare students for the specific knowledge requirements of consulting and auditing professions with associated expertise in the areas of business administration and corporate law.

The aim is to prepare students for managerial tasks in their future professional working life and, if applicable, for the professional examinations to become tax consultants or auditors.

Contents

  • The degree program focuses in almost equal parts on the areas of tax law, business law and business administration.
  • This thematic focus is complemented by the field of Languages and Skills, which includes mathematics, statistics, the principles of academic research and writing, and foreign language courses.
  • In terms of its profile and the problem-solving competences that it aims to impart to students, the degree program is oriented towards the decision-making processes that are usually interrelated in practice. The subject areas are therefore not taught as isolated entities, but interdisciplinary contexts are also dealt with once the necessary basic knowledge has been acquired.
  • In view of the internationalization of the professional world, course contents with international relevance such as international tax law, international accounting and European law are taught from the 4th semester on.
  • An internship in the 7th semester is the ideal introduction to the professional world, as the knowledge the students have acquired can be applied in practice, thus creating an additional link between practice and theory. In addition, the internship offers the opportunity to establish initial contacts with potential employers.

Formal aspects

  • Full-time on-campus degree program,
  • Commencement of studies in winter and summer semester,
  • Period of study: 8 semesters,
  • Four-month internship in the 7th semester.
What can I do with it?

The Business & Law in Accounting and Taxation degree program prepares students in particular for careers in the fields of accounting/auditing, tax consultancy and related professional areas. Following the eight-semester university degree program, and in accordance with Section 36 Para. 1 StBerG (German tax consultancy act), the tax consultant examination can be taken after two years in the profession and the exam to become a certified auditor, pursuant to Section 9 Para. 1 Wirtschaftsprüferordnung (German law regulating the profession of auditors) can be taken after three years working in the profession.

Business lawyers with legal and business administration expertise are in great demand on the labor market, as they close the gap between lawyers and business economists. At Wiesbaden Business School, this combination is supplemented by a third component, tax law.
