ماذا سوف أتعلم؟

The financial crisis of 2008 has partially originated from poorly regulated, risky financial instruments. To avoid such crises in the future, financial and regulatory institutions need experts trained in both accounting and finance. Combining analytical skills in financial risk management with professional knowledge in internal and external accounting, the M.Sc. Accounting and Finance features an integrated analytical approach to graduate education in these fields.

Other than for the difficult task of regulating financial markets, knowledge taught in this program is of great importance in several fields of business that rely on risk management and an understanding of how incentives determine managers' behavior in both financial and non-financial firms. However, the scope of the program reaches far beyond the limits of these two fields of business.

Students who enroll in this program may specialize in either Accounting or Finance through advanced field courses or alternatively choose a more balanced portfolio of courses in both fields. Other courses focus on institutional aspects pertaining to Corporate Governance and Auditing. Importantly, the program includes theory and application of empirical methods as employed in the practice of Empirical Banking or in institutions aiming at international financial stability.

Specializations:

Continuous-time derivative pricing
Advanced corporate finance or
Managerial accounting
Corporate governance and auditing
Managing corporate taxation
Advanced Time Series Analysis
Empirical banking

Career prospects

Graduates have excellent career prospects across a wide range of fields in financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies, in auditing firms, management consulting, industrial firms and the public sector. They will be attractive candidates for all positions that require institutional knowledge, analytical skills and / or expertise in empirical research.

PhD opportunities

Graduates of this program will also find themselves well-positioned for an academic career. If you are interested in continuing your education with a pertinent Doctorate, you may complete your M.Sc. in Accounting and Finance on a Ph.D. track.

This effectively puts you on a fast track to a doctoral degree. Completing this track requires you to obtain 18 ECTS credits from Ph.D. track courses that take students to the frontier of academic research.
Moreover, you will need to fulfill the Master thesis requirement by writing an academic paper that may serve as the starting point of your Ph.D. thesis.
