About

The Finance and Accounting progamme at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences will enable you to build the knowledge and analytical skills needed to design and implement the management systems used to plan and control a firm's performance.

The goal of any enterprise is to create value for its stakeholders. In times of increasing risks it is crucial to take the right financial decisions. Three main themes form the core of the Master in Finance and Accounting, reflecting the multiple roles of the Financial Manager: financial accounting, management accounting and financial management. The Financial Manager is responsible for providing financial advice and support to colleagues and clients to enable them to make sound business decisions. Only with a thorough understanding of all aspects of the business are they able to effectively advise and support management in decision making and furthering company growth and profitability. The Financial Manager should also have extensive knowledge of how risk is defined. They need a sharp eye for recognising the links between the risk and the opportunity costs of capital, while being an expert in coping with risk in practical situations. This one-year Master in Finance and Accounting will help you to gain the expertise and skills you need to be successful in this role.
