The MSc in Accounting and Finance is apt for students interested in careers across a wide range of organisations and sectors in the fields of business, consulting and finance. It also provides a substantial preparation for academic research in accounting or finance.

A career in financial or management accounting and control, corporate finance, internal audit, and related sectors of the economy requires an advanced level of understanding of the theories and practices of accounting and corporate finance. The programme meets this need and is founded on the idea that learning is fruitful when applied in practical decision contexts.

My previous studies focused mostly on theoretical concepts, whereas the MSc in Accounting and Finance looks at real life case studies. Working in multi-cultural teams has influenced my teamwork abilities and broadened my horizon in terms of different problem solution approaches. This programme provides a broad knowledge within the field of management and has improved both my analytical and critical skills.
