The MSc Accountancy and Controlling emphasizes the importance of high-quality information. In today's world, such information is crucial for all kinds of decisions. For instance, shareholders have to decide whether to continue their investment in particular companies, and managers need to decide which strategy to follow for their company to remain successful. These and other decisions require relevant, reliable, and timely information. In your Master’s programme, you will learn how to design information systems that produce such information, and how to assess the quality of existing systems.
The emphasis will be on the future role of auditors and controllers in society. Therefore, much attention will be paid to the opportunities and threats which arise due to innovations in information technology. Similarly, the current trend of reporting about sustainability issues, and its implications for information systems, will receive ample attention. Of course, also more traditional topics, such as ways to detect fraud, will be discussed at length. Many graduates of the MSc Accountancy and Controlling further specialise by obtaining a professional qualification and/or following an executive master programme.

Na de studie
Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt
Many auditors start their career at one of the Big Four auditing firms: KPMG, PwC, Deloitte and EY. Auditors examine a company’s information systems and test the reliability of these systems by conducting random sample checks and data analyses.
Controllers are employed by regular companies, where they prepare budgets and reports, make cost price calculations, assess investment proposals, and design performance measurement systems. Strategic decision-making, IT solutions, and risk management are also examples of subjects a controller deals with.
To become an auditor, you usually need an additional qualification as a Chartered Certified Accountant. As a controller, you may want to pursue a Chartered Management Accountant qualification (optional). The ways of attaining these qualifications differ per country. In the Netherlands, after finishing the Accountancy profile, you can combine your job with the Executive Master of Accountancy (EMA). This programme lasts one and a half years and is combined with a three-year practical internship. On completion, you can use the title Executive Master and the Dutch qualification of 'registeraccountant'.
Alternatively, and irrespective of the profile you completed, you can follow the Executive Master of Finance and Control (EMFC). This part-time programme lasts two years, and – after completion – allows you to use the title Executive Master in Finance & Control and the Dutch equivalent 'registercontroller'.
