Accounting and Control at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Are you looking to fast-track your way to a career in accounting? Whether you’re on our full-time one-year programme or our two-year part-time programme, this Master’s in Accounting and Control is the way to get there.

 

From an accounting perspective, you’ll look at the financial information required to run any organisation, and the information flow needed for managers to make business decisions. And of course control is a key element here: you’ll learn how to use monitoring and reporting to make sure that organisations are governable and performing in the right way.

Accounting and Control

Considering issues at an advanced academic level

 

All business enterprises, governmental entities and not-for-profit organizations rely on accounting systems to produce essential information for management, control, informing external investors and for accountability. Such systems operate in complex settings involving both institutions and markets. The Master Accounting and Control prepares you to embark on a career as preparer, user, or auditor of accounting information. By considering the technical aspects of accounting in relation to the institutional setting, in relation with ongoing developments in information technology and in the light of relevant academic research, you will learn to consider issues in accounting and control at an advanced academic level. Throughout the programme, you are encouraged to reflect on issues of responsibility for accounting information, including integrity, ethics and compliance.

 

The Master’s programme in Accounting and Control is offered in a full-time and a part-time version. The two versions are identical in terms of learning outcomes, course content and assessment, but may differ with respect to the scheduling and teaching formats. The full-time programme is taught in English. Class language in the part-time programme is mostly Dutch. 

 

To break it down:

You’ll take four mandatory courses:

  • Advanced Financial Reporting – Get up to speed in preparing financial statements, and understand the issues that reporting standards are trying to solve.
  • Data Analytics for Accounting and Control – Understand how information technology is changing accounting and develop hands-on skills in data analysis.
  • Advanced Management Accounting – Understand how to design accounting information systems that managers will find useful when making business decisions.
  • Corporate Law – Dutch students will study Dutch corporate law, while international students will follow a tailor-made course on their own legal system.

 

You’ll take at least three electives. For example:

Management Control – Understand how to design incentive systems that have the desired effect on employees. The course integrates general accounting principles with both an integrity/ethics component and an IT component.
Advanced Auditing – Learn to consider key issues in auditing practice, by drawing on a rich toolbox of theoretical insights.
You’ll also write your Master’s thesis and complete a portfolio of assignments aimed at developing professional skills .

Admission requirements with an international degree

 

We look for motivated and ambitious students who have decided that the broad and challenging field of accounting and control is the direction they want to take. You may already have a firm idea of your future career path, but you may also still be considering the many different professional profiles in this area.  We welcome you in either case, and will help you to find your way forward.  We expect that you have a solid academic basis in economics or business.  You have a good grounding in accounting and finance, but you also have the ability and the curiosity to see these disciplines in their wider context.

Apart from general academic and research skills, the programme should include quantitative research methods (statistics) of at least an intermediate level.  We are not necessarily looking for students who have specialized in accounting, but we do expect that you have a solid grounding in the discipline. This means that your programme must include a significant element (as an indication, at least 40-45 EC) of accounting and finance with much of it at least at intermediate level.

English language requirements

The admission board wants to stress the intensity of the programme: reading scientific articles and writing papers will be a key part, all in a very high pace. Your English language skills, both oral and written, are extremely important in this programme. As you will have to communicate frequently with your fellow students and you will be working with and for international companies.

 

VU Amsterdam requires all applicants to take an English test. You can, however, begin your application without having the test results. Exceptions are made for students who have completed a bachelor or master in Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, New Zealand or Australia.

IELTS (academic):

  • Minimum general score 6.5 
  • Minimum score speaking 6.0 
  • Minimum score listening 6.0
