Accounting & Control

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Master Postgraduate Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Economics, commerce, management and accounting
Course summary Are you looking to fast-track your way to a career in accounting? Whether you're on our full-time one-year programme or our two-year part-time programme, Accounting & Control is the way to get there.
Course description To survive and to succeed, all organizations need reliable systems for generating financial information that is relevant to managers, investors and other stakeholders. Even if accounting and control are not the most glamorous aspects of business, they are indispensable. Designing, operating and auditing financial reporting systems for complex organizations is a challenge for the finest minds, and requires a much broader range of skills than the ability to add and subtract. The Accounting and Control programme draws on the strengths of VU Amsterdam both as an established research university and as one of the major providers of postgraduate professional education in accountancy. The programme will give you a solid basis for pursuing a career in accounting and control. The programme is designed in particular for students aiming for positions as financial manager or controller in major organizations, as well as for those who seek to work as an internal or public auditor.
