In these proceedings I review the status of flavour physics beyond the Standard Model. While the LHC did not directly observe any new particles yet, LHCb, BELLE and BABAR found intriguing hints for the violation of lepton flavour universality and also the measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon can be interpreted as a sign of such a violation. In addition, recent lattice results point towards new sources of CP violation in $\epsilon^\prime/\epsilon$. I discuss how these hints for new physics can be explained within various extensions of the Standard Model, including supersymmetry. It turns out that leptoquarqs and $Z^\prime$ bosons are prime candidates for explaining these anomalies while the MSSM can only account for the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and $\epsilon^\prime/\epsilon$. However, one should keep in mind that any model can be supersymmetrized.
