Welcome to FAACT

Finance, Accounting, Auditing, Controlling and Taxation Department


The increasing relevance of sustainable management, the digitalisation of business processes and the competition for scarce resources foster the practical importance of the financial function. The Finance, Accounting, Auditing, Controlling and Taxation (FAACT) department of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum is therefore dedicated to research and teaching in the finance function. It promotes holistic entrepreneurial thinking through the integrative treatment of these topics.
The FAACT department is characterized by its evidence-based, application-oriented research activities with national and international visibility. Through the intensive integration of renowned practice partners, a broad spectrum of current and relevant topics paves its way into research and teaching. The FAACT department offers students a methodologically profound and practice-oriented education that promotes an integrative perspective and is oriented to the needs of the labour market.
