The MSc Accountancy and Controlling emphasizes the importance of high-quality information. In today's world, such information is crucial for all kinds of decisions. Shareholders have to decide whether to continue their investment in particular companies, and managers need to decide which strategy to follow for their company to remain successful. These decisions require relevant, reliable, and timely information. You will learn how to design information systems that produce such information, and how to assess the quality of existing systems.
The emphasis will be on the future role of auditors and controllers in society. Therefore, attention will be paid to the opportunities and threats which arise due to innovations in information technology. Similarly, topics like sustainability and their implications for information systems will receive ample attention. Of course, also more traditional topics, such as ways to detect fraud, will be discussed at length. Many graduates further specialise by obtaining a professional qualification and/or following an executive master's programme.

Controllers are employed by profit and non-profit companies, where they prepare budgets and reports, make cost price calculations, assess investment proposals and design performance measurement systems. Strategic decision-making, IT solutions, and risk management are also examples of subjects a controller deals with. As a controller, you may want to pursue a Chartered Management Accountant qualification (optional).
The ways of attaining these qualifications differ per country. In the Netherlands, after finishing the Accountancy profile, you can combine your job with the Executive Master of Accountancy (EMA). This programme lasts one and a half years and is combined with a three-year practical internship. On completion, you can use the title Executive Master and the Dutch qualification of 'registeraccountant'. Alternatively, and irrespective of the profile you completed, you can follow the Executive Master of Finance and Control (EMFC). This part-time programme lasts two years, and – after completion – allows you to use the title Executive Master in Finance & Control and the Dutch equivalent 'registercontroller'.
