Students who successfully complete the programme and achieve grade levels stipulated by ICAEW, in addition to the four or more ICAEW paper exemptions that the student must already hold to enter the programme, and who then pass the Advanced Level papers, will have completed the examination requirements necessary to become a Chartered Accountant with ICAEW. After then satisfying the professional work experience component, you will be able to apply to become a Chartered Accountant with ICAEW.

The ACA qualification is from the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales). ICAEW Chartered Accountants are always in demand and the ACA Qualification equips students to perform at the highest levels of accountancy, business and finance.

The majority of ACA trainees work in accounting practice and the qualification has a strong practice subject focus (audit, taxation) as well as covering other key technical accounting areas. An increasing number of students are now training in other sectors too.Once qualified, ICAEW Chartered Accountants work in all sectors, from accounting practices to commercial organisations, financial institutions, not for profit organisations and the public sector.

Master's specialisation in Accounting and Control

Gaining the skills and academic knowledge required to become a professional in the domains of auditing, accountancy, controlling and financial management/consulting.
Do you want to dive into the nitty-gritty of a company’s financial system? Interested in managing the company’s financial affairs? Or perhaps you’d prefer to examine and assess a firm’s financial system to provide high-quality public accountability.

After a general overview of the most recent mainstream and divergent economic theories, the Master’s programme in Accounting and Control immerses you in the world of governance, control and accounting. This programme will teach you everything about the figures that make businesses operate. And once you graduate you will have the chance to discover the variety of businesses, processes and people hidden behind the figures.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/ac

Why study Accounting & Control at Radboud University?

- We see accounting and control as more than simply learning to use and analyse information systems, management strategies and control mechanisms. Your findings will influence the behaviour of people and institutions. We therefore emphasise the importance of ethics and other applicable aspects of the profession.

- We teach you a blend of technical skills that are always fueled and supported by academic research and developments. We will show you how to discover the practical relevance of academic discoveries even when they may not be directly applicable to day-to-day work.

- Apart from other financial positions, this programme distinctly lays a good foundation for students desiring to become chartered accountants and controllers, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

- Education and research go hand in hand at Radboud University. Our lecturers are highly active in academic and applied research which allows them to incorporate the latest academic developments and applied issues. This close link between education and research also enables you to actively participate in academic research during your Master’s programme.

- In all of our Master’s programmes, professors and students interact in small groups, thus providing a collegial style of learning.

- Economics at Radboud University could be called ‘Economics Plus’. The ‘standard’ economics package is expanded with relevant knowledge from related disciplines such as psychology and sociology, offering more in-depth knowledge that can be applied in today’s globalised world.

Dealing with conflicts

At Radboud University we challenge you to see financial professions as much more than just dealing with money and trade. Apart from the important economic aspects, we also examine the social side of the profession in order to train you to be critical of a company’s financial processes, as well as your of own profession, and to consider the consequences of the decisions you make. It will help you deal with the inherent conflicts you will undoubtedly come across in your future profession.

Admission requirements for international students

- A proficiency in English
In order to take part in this programme, you need to have fluency in both written and spoken English. Non-native speakers of English without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma need one of the following:
(Certificates may not be older than two year. No other certificates are accepted.)
- TOEFL (iBT) Certificate: minimum overall score of 90, with subscores not lower than 18
- IELTS Academic Certificate: minimum overall score of 6.5, with subscores not lower than 6.0
- Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE): minimum score of C

Career prospects

Employers are increasingly looking for economists who are highly financially literate and can tackle a wide variety of economic problems. This Master’s specialisation will provide you with the skills and academic knowledge required to become a professional in the domains of auditing, accountancy, controlling and financial management/consulting. It will teach you to use your analytical skills to find the shortest route to the best solution and to take the consequences of possible actions into consideration before making a decision.
Our graduates therefore have the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to work in financial positions for audit firms, management consulting firms, financial institutions, large and medium-sized businesses, as well as for government and not-for-profit organisations.

Job positions

This Master’s specialisation is a step in the right direction towards professions as:
- Chartered accountant / Certified public accountant (Dutch = registeraccountant)
- Chartered controller / Business controller (Dutch = registercontroller)
- Management consultant
- Financial advisor / Financial officer

Our approach to this field

Particularly, but not exclusively, this Master’s specialisation provides students with the latest knowledge in the disciplines of accounting information systems, management accounting and control, financial accounting and governance, auditing, organisational learning, strategy management and corporate finance.

Our approach to the field of accounting and control resembles those of the London School of Economics and of the Copenhagen Business School, two universities known for their multidisciplinary and critical view on risk management. Like these prestigious universities, we believe in a broad theoretical basis. We therefore start by teaching our students general economic theories that include not just the mainstream theories but also unorthodox ones that provide a well-rounded perspective to contemporary economics.

The Economics Department at Radboud University is also known for its unique approach of focusing on the social and institutional aspects of the various topics that are taught. We teach our students a pluralistic view, showing how figures can influence people’s perception of a company and therefore also demonstrating the power and responsibility that comes with these professions. It’s important to understand that accounting can aid management but also that it is much more than just a tool, as it can influence behaviour.This needs to be understood not only by accountants, but also by future controllers, auditors and financial managers and advisors.
