    This programme is designed for students who want to work as an accountant/auditor, financial manager or controller/comptroller. You can study towards one of three Master of Science degrees: Master (60 credits), Continuation Master (75 credits), or Master (120 credits). A Master"s degree in business administration meets international demands.

    Employment Market

    A business graduate working in a company"s financial division needs knowledge of accounting and control. The Master (60 cr) means a total study period of four years (three in undergraduate study plus one at Master level). If you plan to work as a chartered accountant, a Master (60 credits), or a Continuation Master (75 credits), in business administration is required. The Master (120 cr) is often a requirement for many positions internationally.


    The programme leads to a Master of Science qualification (60/75[82.5] or 120 credits). The degree requirements are specified under the heading "Programme Aims" in the Programme Study Plan.

    Further Studies

    Graduates are eligible to apply for doctoral programmes in primarily business administration. The discipline in which a doctor"s degree will be awarded depends on the specialisations included in the student"s previous studies.
