“RSM’s MSc in Accounting & Financial Management exceeded my expectations for quality education which opens a wide range of doors for professional realisation. Lectures were valuable because lecturers share their real life experiences. The small group of students in the workshops provided the opportunity to better understand the theory through class discussions, presentations, and group work. I also liked the fact there were many guest lectures. It’s interesting to hear business professionals share their experiences with us and explain how they apply theory in their day-to-day work. They also told us about job opportunities. This gave me the chance to compare different work fields, which contributed to my decision about the professional path I want to follow: to working as an auditor in one of the Big Four companies.

I believe that accounting is the core of a successful business, which requires a broad knowledge of the processes and activities at all levels of an organisation.

This master programme is challenging and interesting, and has teachers who are enthusiastic, patient, open and willing to help. My fellow students were motivated, determined and competitive. All this created a pleasant atmosphere, which is a solid base for the next level of our lives: our dream job.  

In addition to a very good academic reputation, RSM and Erasmus University give students the possibility to develop their own skills and enjoy student life. There are many student organisations which organise different activities, either professionally oriented or just for fun, where you can meet many new people and broaden your social network. You can get involved in extra-curricular activities by becoming part of their committees. My participation in an Erasmus Student Network committee and as a RSM master ambassador for my master helped me to further improve my social and organisational skills which are valuable assets on my CV.”
