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.

The programme focuses on the fields of Corporate Finance, Accounting and Management Control, which are central to the functioning and success of corporations and other organisations. They lie at the intersection of business strategy, processes and information which are critical to ensure that decisions and behaviours are consistent with corporate and strategic objectives.

Our research-based faculty proposes courses carefully designed to strike a balance between strong theoretical foundations and a high degree of real-world applicability. As such, in addition to being exposed to a rigorous treatment of both classical and contemporary theories, students will gain practical knowledge through an extensive use of challenging team-based assignments and cases that focus attention on relevant current issues faced by organizations. The programme will deepen your analytical competence, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as enhance your ability to work in diverse groups. Given the challenging and demanding nature of our programme, students are expected to engage in a significant amount of independent study and preparation to succeed.
