Course summary How can you help managers to prepare their company for the future? And how do you assure that information is useful and reliable?
Course description The MSc Accountancy & Controlling emphasizes the importance of high quality information. In today's world, such information is crucial for all kinds of decisions. For instance, shareholders have to decide whether to continue their investment in particular companies, tax authorities must determine the amount of taxes to be paid by different organizations, and managers need to assess whether the strategy followed by their company is successful. These and other decisions have major implications for individuals, organizations and society as a whole. Therefore, they require relevant, reliable and timely information. In the MSc Accountancy & Controlling, you will learn how to design information systems which produce such information. In addition, you will learn to assess the quality of information and of information systems. Special attention will be paid to the implications of sustainability issues for information systems, opportunities and threats due to innovations in information technology, and ways to detect fraud. Many graduates of the MSc Accountancy & Controlling further specialise by following an executive master programme.
