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.
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.
Graduates are eligible to apply for doctoral programmes in primarily business administration.
