Control (MSc Accountancy and Control)

Opslaan in favorieten

How can information help organisations to reach their goals? This is the core question you will learn how to answer in the Control track. This track is one of 2 tracks you can opt for in our Master's in Accountancy & Control.

Help organisations reach their goals

Controlling ensures the integrity of processes, procedures and information systems, and provides timely, meaningful and understandable financial information and analysis. Controllers assist everyone in working together in their respective roles efficiently to provide accurate and fresh financial data and analysis in a form everyone can understand.

A good controller anticipates the information needs of management and provides timely financial data, analysis and recommendations. And lets management know about all the important financial aspects surrounding the business.  

The Control track emphasises the role that information plays in the management of organisations, focusing on both departments and people. Control is therefore about managing organisations: how to make sure the organisation reaches its goals.

Why choose the Control track?

  1. Beside the 6 general courses you will have specific courses with focus on Strategic Value Management and Corporate Financial Management.
  2. After graduation, you have an excellent job prospect at wide variety of business and public organisations, including commercial organisations, non-profit organisations, the Financial Markets Authority and the Dutch Central Bank.

Track-specific courses

Apart from the 6 general courses of the full programme, you will follow 3 track-specific courses.

  • Strategic Value Management (5EC)

    This course focuses on the role of controllers in managing costs, revenues and value. Topics that will be covered include short and long term cost management, customer profitability and innovation.

  • Corporate Financial Management (5EC)

    This course offers you a blend of lectures, case discussions and hands-on exercise sessions to enhance your understanding of corporate finance and corporate valuation.

  • Business Lab: Control (3EC)

    Apply your knowledge to solve complex business issues in the area of control. Together with your fellow students, you will work on cases that a company struggles with. For example, cost reduction, investments decisions and using big data in decision making.

Real-life case: how productive is a manager?
In modern economies, most people work in service organisations. But how do you measure the productivity and efficiency of for example a manager or consultant? Or the contributions of a researcher in developing a new medicine? And if it's difficult to measure their output, how do you manage these professionals?
