University of Amsterdam

Master Postgraduate Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Economics, commerce, management and accounting
Course summary During the Master's programme in Accountancy and Control, you will learn to analyse, interpret and research the flows of financial information within and across organisations.
Course description The Accountancy track is designed for students of Business Economics with a general and analytical interest in financial information flows between and within organisations and, more specifically, in providing information services to senior managers and other stakeholders. This track combines academic rigour with practical examples and applications, and provides admission to the post-Master Accountancy (PMA) programme (Dutch taught), leading to qualification as a chartered accountant. The Amsterdam Business School (ABS) at the UvA specialises in providing students with the broad range of skills, in-depth knowledge and international expertise they will need in the business world and the public sector. One of the five research programmes is dedicated to Accounting, and students in the MSc in Accountancy & Control benefit from learning in an environment where developments in the field are constantly being explored.
Study subjects The two tracks share a joint core curriculum consisting of courses in financial reporting, accountability, and risk management. The Accountancy track complements the core courses with courses in the field of financial accounting and assurance. The programme concludes with an MSc thesis. For those who are interested, this track also provides direct admission to the Dutch Chartered Accountancy programme (taught in Dutch).
