Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is Germany's best university for auditors. Manager Magazin in cooperation with Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung mbH (WGMB) today published its ranking of "Germany's best auditors". Frankfurt School took first place in the category "Germany's best universities for auditors" and is the only university to receive an excellent rating. For the ranking, WGMB interviewed 51 auditing companies and 894 of their clients. Frankfurt School as the best university received 252 of 300 possible points - ahead of the University of Mannheim in second place and the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Münster in third place. The LMU Munich came fourth.
"We are delighted about this award, because it confirms what we as Frankfurt School stand for - Impact, Science and Excellence. Our academic programmes help auditing companies in Germany and beyond to obtain excellent young talent. The survey of practitioners and their clients shows that we are making a positive difference in an important industry for Germany," explains Professor Dr. Nils Stieglitz, President of the business school.
Frankfurt School offers six degree programmes with different majors which prepare students for a profession in the field of auditing. The Master in Auditing specifically targets students who aim to become a certified auditor and is therefore accredited separately - by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA) and AuditXcellence, which is an initiative of the four largest auditing companies in the world. In the programme, three out of seven exams are credited for the auditor's examination. Of the more than 2,600 students in the business school's academic programmes, 304 study subjects leading up to this exam.
