The Institute for Management and Controlling (IMC) is a leading think-tank in the field of management accounting and controlling, based at the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management. It is headed by Professor Lukas Löhlein, Professor Marko Reimer and Professor Utz Schäffer, and bundles the research and teaching activities of university lecturers, doctoral candidates and staff. Professor Emeritus Jürgen Weber continues to be actively associated with the IMC.
Its core objectives are:
- To track the role of CFOs, controllers and financial directors in the context of the IMC research project, and to develop their roles through critical discourse
- To contribute to the education of responsible managers in finance functions and beyond in the context of IMC teaching activities
- To accompany the transformation of the finance function and the development of the controller role through the IMC’s engagement with business
Thanks to its close links to business practice, CTcon is the ideal partner for the IMC. We support the systematic transfer of research findings into controlling reality. At the same time, the collaboration continuously feeds new aspects and insights into CTcon’s consulting work, which often provides clients with valuable new options.
The close collaboration is also reflected in the composition of the advisory boards: Dr. Christian Bungenstock, founder and Managing Director of CTcon, is a member of the IMC’s Advisory Board, while Professor Schäffer serves on the CTcon Scientific Advisory Board.
