Master program in Accounting, Valuation & Financial Management

The MSc program in Accounting, Valuation & Financial Management provides you with relevant accounting and financial management knowledge and qualifies you for a career as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Management Consultant, Investment Banker, Business Controller, Financial Analyst or Auditor (for example).

As a graduate from the program, you will have a deep understanding of how financial and non-financial controls can be integrated and used for managing multinational companies from various industries, how large companies report to external share- and stakeholders and how those evaluate the financial and non-financial performance of companies in for example valuation settings. 

Key topics include financial reporting principles, business control, capital budgeting, financial analysis and corporate valuation. In all our courses we take an analytical and international perspective. For example, in the financial reporting core courses we focus on the main concepts and principles that lie behind most international accounting standards such as IFRS. Consequently, the insights you get in the program remain valuable also when concrete financial standards change. We see accounting as a language you need to understand in order to properly analyze and understand a business corporation.

As a top level program with a relatively low number of students, we can offer an intimate and creative learning environment. Our faculty (all active researchers) is engaged in pedagogical development and intrigued by the learning journey of our students. The program is thoughtfully designed to encompass a variety of pedagogical methods such as lectures, group work, case teaching and a high degree of real-world examples. With close connections to the business community we are also able to have frequent guest lectures by top management of multinational firms. 

The program has an advisory board with members from leading positions in various industries. Get to know them here.
