About Accounting, Auditing and Control at Erasmus School of Economics

Why study this programme?

The MSc in Accounting, Auditing and Control at Erasmus School of Economics offers you a broad foundation in the areas of auditing, control and finance, and the opportunity to tailor the programme to your own interests and career ambitions through three specialisations: Accounting and Auditing, Accounting and Control and Accounting and Finance. Our programme is well-connected to all major accounting and finance companies in Rotterdam, offering you the chance to get a head-start in your career.

Is this the right choice for you?

Do you want to play a pivotal role in the accounting, auditing, or assurance branch? The interactive Accounting and Auditing specialisation will get you there. This specialisation is also your path to access the post-graduate programme that enables you to become a Chartered Accountant (CPA), in Dutch: ‘Registeraccountant’ (RA).

Do you want to facilitate optimal business decisions by making sure all data are taken into account properly? The master specialisation Accounting and Control prepares you in the best possible way for a position as a business controller and offers, depending on the courses you chose during your bachelor, access to an Executive Master of Finance and Control programme that leads to the qualification of Certified Controller, in Dutch: ‘Register Controller’ (RC).

Do you want to combine your knack for numbers with managerial skills? The master specialisation Accounting and Finance bridges the gap between auditing and control on the one hand, and corporate governance on the other hand. The combination of financial accounting, management control and finance aspects offer an all-round perspective on financial issues. You will study a wide range of topics in courses and seminars and examine issues from both a practical and analytical point of view.

If you possess the following traits, you are in a good position to apply for the programme:

  • You enjoy quantitative tasks and are good at them.
  • Your bachelor has given you a proper background in statistics as well as financial accounting and reporting.
  • By nature, you are inquisitive, analytical, critical and meticulous.
  • Your social and qualitative skills enable you to communicate your results clearly and to work in teams.
