The analysis of organisational structures of such universities was supposed to answer the following research questions: whether there is a controlling department, and if so, where in the organisational structures it is located and what tasks are entrusted to this unit or department. When trying to answer the questions, there was employed the study of literature in the field of controlling, and there was conducted a study comparing the location of existing controlling unit or departments in economic universities in Poland. The article shows that despite different allocations of the controlling unit or departments in the structures of the discussed universities, the tasks dedicated them are the same, and differ only in the manner and place of submission of all types of reports.
