Aim of this project is to forecast the number of graduates in economics and business administration with a specialisation in fields which are relevant for starting a career in accounting and audit. The outlook is based on the graduation rates in the relevant fields of study, the high school graduation rates and the university enrolment rates which will then be compared to the demand of graduates of the big four audit firms in Germany. This first analysis can then be developed towards a continuous monitoring of graduation rates in economics and business administration.
