When I started my Master in Accounting & Control in 2010, I was one of very few students who decided to follow the controlling track. Somehow, this subject is relatively unknown in the Netherlands. Most students plan to become an auditor and join one of the ‘big four’. But the importance of controlling is increasing and there are many job opportunities; these factors are among the reasons why I decided to do a MSc in Accounting & Control.

When choosing the university for my master, my choice was limited to two universities in the Netherlands; the one where I did my Bachelor’s degree, and RSM. I had no option other than staying in the Netherlands, where education is renowned for its high quality and is also affordable. In the end, RSM’s ranking and its reputation were the reasons that led me choose it. Having studied here for a few months now, I realise that there are other more important factors contributing to my successful studies.  I like the fact that our programme is relatively small, which enables more interaction academically and socially. Students at RSM are of many different nationalities, Rotterdam has a lot to offer, and I could finally, improve my Dutch language skills
