Overview

This Financial Services and Corporate Finance programme of Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society professionally qualifies students for employment in the entire field of financial services and corporate finance.

The program is completed with the degree of Bachelor of Arts (B.A.).

Program Aim

The program in Financial Services and Corporate Finance meets the existing and anticipated demand for qualified young academics with a corresponding professional profile in accounting. This, however, is intentionally not limited to employment in classic financial services institutions, such as banks and insurance companies. Bearing in mind the predominantly functional perspective (guiding question: in terms of financial services, which demands can be satisfied, and which problems need to be solved?), the program instead qualifies students to work in the entire field of financial services and corporate finance (in the sense of corporate finance-related activities in industry, commerce, and in the service sectors).

Students acquire the necessary skills that prepare them for successful professional employment within this career field. Graduates are able to take on executive, planning, and/or controlling responsibilities—whether as regular employees or self-employed workers.

Career fields for Bachelor’s graduates:

The program constitutes a first-qualifying degree and enables students to take on specialist and managerial responsibilities in the following areas:
  • In financial departments of corporations.
  • In the credit services sector.
  • In the insurance industry.
  • In the funds industry.
  • In corporate consulting.
  • At associations and institutions.
  • As investment advisors.
  • As insurance salespeople.
  • In planning departments at companies.
