Accountancy en Controlling

Programma

  • 1 jaar

    The programme has two profiles to choose from: Accountancy (with a focus on the information needs of external stakeholders, such as shareholders) and Controlling (with a focus on the needs of managers and other internal stakeholders).

    The two profiles share two courses (10 EC in total) on Accounting Information Systems and one course on Strategy (5 EC). In addition, Accountancy students specialise in Auditing (10 EC) and Financial Accounting (10 EC). Controlling students specialise in Management Accounting and Control (15 EC) and Financial Management (5 EC). Both profiles are rounded off with a thesis (20 EC), for which students prepare themselves in a course on research methods (5 EC). The data collection for the thesis can be combined with an internship.

    Wherever you are, there is always a need for people to check if things add up

    “In order to understand the significant added value that the MSc in A&C offers, I always rely on examples that don't appear at first to relate directly to my studies. I've undertaken a number of extra-curricular activities during my time in Groningen and it has proved very valuable for me to be educated at the academic intersection of finance, auditing and internal control. Whether it was in a political position, during my internship in Kenya or now that I am writing my thesis on the subject of governing the global diamond and diamond jewellery value chain, there is and always will be a demand for people who can understand financial and non-financial information and explain to others why something should or should not be done. In the words of a Dutch ambassador I once spoke to, 'Wherever you are, there is always a need for people to check if things add up'. If you are looking for a sound academic base for doing this, I would encourage you to apply for the MSc in Accountancy & Controlling.”

    Working at Ernst & Young

    Marlies van Uhm. Graduate in Accountancy, working at Ernst & Young

    I didn’t have to wait long to find a job after graduating. I’d already been working as an assistant accountant at Ernst & Young Groningen for two years. In May 2009, I was hired for the same position in Amsterdam. I’m currently combining that job with a training programme to become a registered accountant, for which I’m in Groningen one day a week. My job is very varied; I’m usually visiting clients in the region and so I’m rarely at the office. Instead, I find myself at banks, hospitals and IT companies, where I audit the annual accounts. It never gets boring, but I do find I have less time for the fun things I used to be able to fit in as a student. Sometimes you just have to put in as many hours as you can. An advantage is that my position closely ties in with the degree programme I studied, particularly the theoretical aspects, such as describing processes within organisations and the tools you need to audit annual accounts.
