Do you want to master the language of business, accounting and finance? In this MSc programme, you’ll focus on accounting and financial management skills, and explore important societal trends such as data and analytics. There’s a close connection between state-of-the-art academic knowledge and business practice.
In the four core courses you’ll learn the crucial role that accounting and financial information plays for managers, external stakeholders and society at large. You’ll also choose electives to specialise for your career in accountancy, financial management and controlling, or financial advisory.
Learn economic and behavioural theory, analytical methods and core models of accounting and financial management
Generate sustainable solutions for complex accounting and financial management problems using qualitative and quantitative methods, and understand the managerial implications
Design and execute a research project in a business context
Learn how to effectively communicate with managers, regulators, external stakeholders and society
Reflect on your ethical responsibility and influence, abilities, and limitations
Develop your leadership skills, and learn to leverage the advantages of team diversity.
You’ll have excellent career opportunities: 100% of recent graduates found a job within six months after graduating. Most of them found a job in auditing in one of the Big Four, others in large corporates as controllers or financial managers. There are also many other job perspectives in careers in financial management.
The programme is accredited by the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACCA) and aligned with post-graduate education programmes to become a certified auditor (Register Accountant/CPA/ACA) or certified management accountant (Register Controller/CMA).
I like the international atmosphere at Erasmus University. It’s a beautiful campus with lots of facilities, like study places, a food plaza, and a sports building. In the MSc AFM programme we work on real business cases. We focus on topics that we’ll encounter in real life, when we work in accounting or finance. The master is very broad. This is attractive if you’re still exploring what kind of career path you want: you can really go into any direction after this.
