Welcome to the Institute of Management Control and Consulting!

The Institute of Management Control and Consulting has been institutionally anchored at the Johannes Kepler University for 30 years and has been headed by Prof. Dr. Birgit Feldbauer-Durstmüller since 1 October 2005.

Controlling is an entrepreneurial function that makes a central contribution to the sustainable success of an organisation. The area of responsibility of controllers includes the design and monitoring of the management process regarding goal setting, planning, control and information provision.

The Institute's education includes the following focal points:

  • Operational controlling
  • Strategic controlling
  • Risk and crisis management
  • Controlling and IT

In addition to technical content, personal and social aspects of the controller role are also addressed ("Business Partner"). IT support has long been part of the everyday work of controllers. A major focus is therefore on the advancing digitalisation of business processes.

The Institute's research is characterised by a high degree of interdisciplinarity and covers all key areas of the JKU. It is both internationally (journals) and nationally (practitioners) oriented.

The Institute maintains contacts with numerous partners from the industry, small and medium-sized enterprises, family businesses, banks or creditor protection associations. This close connection to business practice is expressed in the form of practical projects, internships, lectures and excursions.
