Controlling & Management Review

With Controlling and Management Review, editors Professor Utz Schäffer and Professor Jürgen Weber have bridged the gap between science and corporate practice. It is the most cited journal for controlling and management in German-speaking regions and provides a platform for a lively exchange of ideas within the controlling community.
