From Physics to Finance & Controlling
We will continue our series of alumni talks with a presentation given by Dr. Christoph Langhammer. After obtaining his PhD in physics at MPI CPfS, Christoph started a career in finance and controlling. In his talk, he will discuss career opportunities in this business sector.

There are distinctive opportunities for graduates in chemistry to seek immediate employment in the chemical industry; in contrast, however, there is no clearly defined industrial field in the physics profession. Nevertheless there is a huge variety of interesting career paths for natural scientists in nowadays. I will introduce the field Finance & Controlling with its exciting career opportunities. Within a wider context I will explain classical financial business functions like Accounting, Controlling and Treasury as well as their integration into generic organizational structures of internationally operating corporations.
