Master’s programme in Accounting and Finance
MSc in Business and Economics | 1 year | 60 credits
The Master’s in Accounting and Finance is a one year, full-time programme, preparing you for a career in financial or professional services.
Accounting, corporate finance and management control are closely related parts of the broader accounting and finance field. They all lie at the intersection where business strategy, processes and information combine and represent critical functions in organizations to ensure that decisions, processes, and behaviours are consistent with corporate objectives and that strategies are related to performance.
Our programme provides a strong theoretical grounding provided by our research-based faculty. The programme is also highly applied, requiring a significant amount of independent study and preparation is required for being successful as a student. We make intensive use of challenging, team-based assignments and cases that focus attention on business and the role of corporate finance and management accounting in a strategic management setting. The programme will deepen your analytical thinking and your problem-solving skills, as well as enhance your teamwork skills and your practical corporate finance or management accounting and performance management skills. And you will study together with students from all over the world.
