Eva Schönander studies MSc Accounting and Financial Management

"I am interested in how companies operate and therefore I really appreciate this program as our core courses include both accounting, financial management and risk management"

  Why does MSc AFM suit you so well?
- I am interested in how companies work and therefore I really appreciate this program as our core courses include both accounting, financial management and risk management. We also have a lot of group work where we get to solve different cases together, which I enjoy.

In what way do studies at master's level differ compared to master's level?
- A big difference between master's level and bachelor's level is that you get a deeper understanding of the subjects as the courses are more connected to each other and are following a line of argument. Many theories and models that have been presented to us in previous courses recur in future courses. Another difference is that in comparison with the Bachelor’s level, we have more group assignments in each course. I also think that the cases on Master's level have a stronger connection to real life, which for me adds an increased understanding.

What benefits do you see from having continued your studies at the School of Business, Economics and Law?
- I have had the chance to further develop my critical ability. We learn to question and not just accept things for what they are. I have also had the chance to further develop my ability to perform teamwork through all the group work that has been done.

What do you want to do after graduation?
- After graduation, I want to work in auditing. The biggest reason why I want to work in auditing is the close customer contact and the opportunity to help companies with their risks and opportunities. Often in auditing you work in teams, which is something that I prefer.
