Why did I choose Accounting and Auditing?

By the end of my bachelor I had to consider which master I wanted to do. Holding a bachelors’ degree in Economics and Business Economics left me with numerous opportunities. However, during my bachelor I found the Financial Accounting course very intriguing and the job opportunities as an auditor very interesting. Getting to dig deep into the financial and non-financial information of a firm, as well as a very diverse and challenging work environment is what I find most interesting about this job.

Being both interested in a career as an auditor and the fact that this degree provides a strong position in the labour market made me decide to subscribe for the Msc Accounting, Auditing and Control.

Truly interesting lectures

The programme offers a broad variety of courses, which cover theoretical and academic skills as well as practical assignments and group assignments. My favourite course was Auditing Theory that mainly covers the basics of auditing and why and how audits take place and the different forms of audits. This course truly gives insight to the particular field of work related to this master. Most lecturers in this specialisation work for a company and they all have a lot of practical experience and academic and theoretical knowledge, which ensures truly interesting lectures.

Furthermore, the Accounting and Auditing track offers the opportunity to apply for the PwC Honours Master programme. This extracurricular programme adds practical insights through additional workshops, company visits and a business game to the regular master programme.
