Dear professors,

The ICV and Region East of the ICV are once again inviting submissions for the “ICV Newcomer Award”.

The objectives of the ICV Newcomer Award are the promotion of young academics in the field of Management Accounting and the transfer of innovative and practicable ideas from the university environment to the active practice of Management Accounting where they can be applied by a huge number of professional Management Accountants.

Prizes are awarded for three master theses or exceptional bachelor theses that discuss Management Accounting innovations or the practical application of classical Management Accounting issues. A further wish is, that the applicant critical discusses the guidelines of the International Controller Association.

Papers submitted at any European University after April 30, 2020 are accepted for this award.

Professors acting as a supervisor for the relevant theses may submit proposals for the ICV Newcomer Award 2022. We would like to invite you to submit theses worthy of this prize together with the complete application documentation. The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2022. We welcome the submission of theses from any aspect of Management Accounting in either German or English.

The jury consists of Management Accounting practitioners and university representatives and its final decision will be based on a combination of scientific value, degree of innovation and the deductibility of implications for the practice of Management Accounting.

The total award of the ICV Newcomer Award is EUR 4,000, sponsored by Haufe and the Haufe Akademie. In addition, all prize winners will receive one year’s free membership with the International Association of Controllers (ICV) which also includes a subscription to the Controller Magazin (delivery only in german-speaking area).

The ICV Newcomer Award will be awarded at one of the ICV event CIB Controlling Innovation Berlin. We expect award winners to present their work to a broad audience at the CIB, ideally with the support of their supervising professor.

We’re looking forward to your participation and are excited about reviewing the innovative and practicable Management Accounting ideas developed under your supervision.

Let’s work together to promote young talent!

With kind regards,


Prof. Dr. Nicole Jekel
