Description of the programme

Master's Programme in Accounting is organized by the School of Business. The MSc Programme in Accounting is tuned to address the challenges of the digital age, where managers and decision-makers often become overwhelmed by masses of data, dubious sources of knowledge and misleading pieces of information.  Reliable, valid and focused financial information, for both financial accounting and management accounting purposes, is increasingly important in an age where more “information” is often synonymous with chaos and confusion. Accounting remains a powerful instrument in the creation of relevance - in the often turbulent contemporary organizations of our time. Competence in accounting leads to the right questions. It assists us in identifying the most strategic issues or the most urgent operational problems. It makes visible the risks that may loom ahead. And accounting is the invaluable tool for finding financially sound, workable solutions in today’s often complex and ambiguous managerial instances. Moreover, accounting knowledge is a shared “language” of business: It mobilizes people – making them think, act and perform - across global distance, national borders, functional segments or organizational boundaries.

Career opportunities

Upon graduating from the MSc Programme in Accounting, the students are typically employed as business controllers, chief financial officers, financial analysts, loan officers, business consultants, auditors, and similar occupations requiring high level professional expertise in accounting. The programme also offers prerequisite knowledge to pursue post graduate doctoral studies in the subject area (accounting).
