Why study this programme?

Do you want to dive into the nitty-gritty of a company’s financial system? Want to help senior management in managing the company’s financial affairs? Or perhaps you would prefer to examine and assess every aspect of the firm’s financial system to provide high-quality public accountability. During this Master's specialisation you will gain the skills and academic knowledge required to become a professional in the domains of auditing, accountancy, controlling and financial management and consulting. 


Master's specialisation in Accounting and Control

  • This specialisation provides students with the latest knowledge in the disciplines of accounting information systems, management accounting and control, financial accounting and governance, auditing, organisational learning, strategy management and corporate finance.
  • We emphasise the importance of ethics and other social aspects of the profession. We teach our students a pluralistic view, showing how figures can influence people’s perception of a company and therefore also showing the power and responsibility that coincides with the profession.
  • The specialisation is unique for its multidisciplinarity, its critical view on risk management, and its broad theoretical basis. We therefore start by teaching our students general economic theories that include not just the mainstream theories but also heterodox theories that give a different and well-rounded perspective on contemporary economics.
  • Real-world case scenarios, guest-speakers and the very latest theories on current events will contribute to you becoming a professional that upon graduating immediately attracts the attention of potential employers.
  • Economics at Radboud University could be called ‘Economics Plus’: the ‘standard’ economics package is expanded on with relevant knowledge from related disciplines such as Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. With this strong theoretical background, you come to understand not just what is happening, but also how and why.
