The Institute for Accounting, Controlling and Financial Management (IUCF) was founded in 2016 and is an interdisciplinary institute of the NBS Northern Business School based in Hamburg. The research activities of the IUCF are oriented towards various national and international priorities in the context of the digital economy.

One of the main focuses of the institute is research in the form of publications of its own scientific studies. Furthermore, the development and implementation of events to promote business start-ups have high priority. These are promoted through the coordination and development of the relevant business modules of the NBS. The results of successful collaboration are reflected in the scientific publications.
