How to support managers when they are pursuing the organizational strategy? Which information is useful to them, and how does this information affect the behaviour of employees?
The MSc Management Accounting and Control concentrates on enabling managers to achieve organizational goals. During this programme, you will gain knowledge about management accounting and financial management techniques. These techniques are used to provide (non-)financial information for decision-making and to develop planning and control systems. You will also develop the skills needed to communicate the information in an effective manner. The techniques will be placed in a context of broader issues, such as strategy, human behaviour and culture, and special attention will be paid to changes in accounting systems. You will explore subjects like management accounting, financial management, management control and management of change. Therefore, the Management Accounting and Control programme will enable you to connect the information needs of managers to state-of-the-art knowledge about human behaviour.
Moreover, you will have ample opportunities to broaden your scope in a way that fits your personal interests and career plans, by selecting electives from a large set of business administration courses. A combination of teaching and assessment methods is used. Every year, around 50 students follow the programme.
The MSc Business Administration - Management Accounting and Control was previously offered under the profile name Organizational and Management Control.
