During semesters one and two, you take common core courses in accounting and financial management. The first semester begins with courses that ensure all students are prepared for advanced studies in both accounting and financial management. That is, you will first take EITHER a course in accounting OR a course in corporate finance. In parallel, all students take the course Perspectives of Accounting and Financial Management, which serves to provide with a theoretical basis for later courses. Then follows core subject and method courses for the first academic year.

During the third semester, you choose a number of elective courses within your area of interest. You can specialise within the field of accounting and financial management or broaden your skills with elective courses from other programmes. The third semester can also be spent at one of the school’s many partner universities, or at an external organization as part of our internship course.

In the fourth semester, you will write a master's thesis.
