Course Modules

First semester

The year begins with two core courses on topics that are of crucial importance to any accounting professional:

  • Management Control
  • International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)

In period 2  one track-specific course, Management Control Research, and one common course on Sustainability, Accountability & Ethics will be taught.

During both period 1 and period 2 students also participate in a Research Seminar that prepares them for writing your Master’s thesis in the second semester.

In period 3 they follow a course on Accounting Information Systems. This course provides them with hands-on experience in using an SAP Enterprise Research Management System. For interested students, UvA has an agreement with SAP that allows students use the knowledge acquired in this course to obtain an official SAP certificate at significant discount.

Second semester

During the second semester, students extend your expertise in finance and control by following a course on Corporate Financial Management in period 4 and a course on advanced Management Accounting in period 5.

In period 4 they also take a common course in Internal Control and Risk Management

Finally, throughout the second semester students work on their own research project and write their thesis under the supervision on one of ABS’s experienced faculty members.
