Accounting and Auditing

Transform financial data into reliable, understandable, comparable and relevant management information

Are you a number-cruncher with an eye for what lies beyond the facts and figures? Do you follow and try to unravel every corporate scandal in the news? Do you aim for an international career? The Accounting and Auditing programme will get you there. 

This specialisation is your path to become a ‘Chartered Accountant’ (RA, Certified Public Auditor, post-graduate), “In Dutch: Registeraccounting”. It covers all theoretical and practical aspects of collecting, categorising, summarising, analysing and using financial data in organisations. In paper assignments and group discussions we will not only introduce you to techniques and theoretical frameworks relevant to accounting and auditing, we also stimulate a critical, independent perspective toward this fascinating field.
