Chair - Prof. Dr. Klaus Möller Welcome to the Chair of Controlling / Performance Management at the University of St.Gallen. Research Our research concentrates on further developing the SPMM – St. Gallen Performance Management Model (www.spmm.ch<http://www.spmm.ch>).In terms of methodology we focus on empirical research approaches (quantitative as well as case study based) with the aim of publishing relevant research results in top-level journals. Close cooperation exists with international research partners (University of Bologna, VU University Amsterdam and others) as well as with several companies. Teaching The chair is engaged in the mandatory courses "Management Accounting" for the Master of Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) and “Management and Financial Control” for the Master of Management. Moreover, the chair offers further electives to students at Bachelor, Master and PhD level. Frequently we invite guest speakers from practice to contribute with insights from the field and employ visiting lecturers. Transfer We see practical applications as a proof of concept for our theory driven developed concepts. Therefore we maintain close connection with practice within transfer-projects. This is often conducted in the context of national or international publicly funded projects as well as single corporate projects. Executive education In order to intensify the transfer of knowledge between research, theory and practice we are also engaged in executive education in executive MBA or corporate programs. We also offer specific courses for practitioners or companies in the field of performance management.
