About us

Our Mission at the Institute of Management Accounting and Control (IMC)

Our mission at the Institute is to accompany the transformation of the finance function and the development of the controlling profession into an active partnership with management. We have consistently called for a behavioral and management oriented perspective on controlling (“the business partner”) as well as a broad view on strategy execution (“management control systems as a package”). Over time, we have indeed observed a fundamental transformation of what controllers do and what controlling is considered to be in corporate practice. Today, we hypothesize that information technology, globalization and other factors will result in another fundamental transformation of the finance function and the profession of controllers.
