Masterprogram i redovisning och finansiell styrning

The Master of Science in Accounting and Financial Management is a degree programme that prepares students for qualified work within the fields of accounting and financial management, both in the private and public sectors. With faculty active in research, practice and policy-setting, students will acquire both quantitative skills and an understanding of the importance of organizational context.  Upon graduation students will be well prepared for competing on an international job-market.

The programme offers 60 credits core courses, within managerial and financial accounting, financial management, and risk management. Furthermore, the programme contains a slot of 30 credits elective courses, either for further specialization within the field of accounting and financial management or for broadening of skills through taking courses from other Master's programmes at Graduate School. The program ends with a 30 credits Master Degree project.

Course content is based on theoretical and empirical research, and students benefit from the support of active researchers in relevant fields. Learning activities to ensure Information and Communication Technology proficiency and sustainability literacy are integrated throughout the two years of study.  Through lectures and work-assignments, students further develop their skills in oral and written communication, analytical problem solving and teamwork.

The programme provides insight into all the main functions of corporate accounting and finance departments, enabling students to compete for qualified positions in the international job market. Future prospects include positions such as managerial and financial controller, financial officer, financial reporting specialist, auditor, and financial analyst. Students from the programme are also eligible to pursue an academic career by applying to the Ph.D. programme upon graduation.
