Programme structure

The programme has a duration of 2 years and consists of 4 semesters.

1st semester: Prerequisite courses

The first semester of the Master programme in Management Accounting and Control consists of 5 courses.

Three prespectives will be introduced to the students in the Foundation of Management Accounting Research course – positivistic, interpretive, and critical – and their underlying assumptions concerning the generation of scientific knowledge and its impact on our lives

Cost Management: Theories, Models and Technologies aims at providing the students with knowledge about Danish and international cost management traditions, in order to create a thorough conceptual understanding of the fundamental techniques in cost accounting.

Extracting relevant data and performing valid quantitative analysis will be taught in Advanced Excel.

Strategic and Organizational Concepts for Management Control focuses on giving the students a solid foundation of knowledge of the different strategic schools and organisational concepts that form contemporary management control.

Lastly, Planning and Budgeting is closely linked to performance measurements and it contributes to a specific focus on the organisations strategic goals.

2nd semester: Specialisation courses

The second semester focuses on 5 specialised courses.

The course in Accounting Information Systems gives the students an outline of the different types of administrative programmers, their designs, application, implementation and security.

Various approaches and principles of performance management and how these will cohere with different types of organisations and organisational activity operating in various business environments will be taught in the Performance Management course. Emphasis will not only be on the appropriate choice of tools and approach for the specific context, but also on the business reality they create, i.e. their impact on human and social behaviour, and hence their strategic implications.

International Financial Accounting I and International Financial Accounting II focuses on developing an understanding of the importance of the quality of accounting information for decision making.

Following the course “Foundations of Management Accounting Research” from the first semester, Practice Project in Management Accounting is a practical application of the prerequsisite course. The goal of the course is to enable students to plan, investigate and compose a group-report on a management accounting problem in practice, and to reflect on their findings as a group in an expert conversation. Proficiency of these capabilities matters for both project-related work in a professional career as well as for writing a stringent Master's thesis.

3rd semester: Electives or study abroad

In the third semester, you can choose elective courses within your areas of interest. The courses can be taken either at Aarhus BSS during the semester, at the AU Summer University or at one of our more than 300 partner universities abroad. You can also participate in internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad.

4th semester: Final thesis

The fourth semester is devoted to the Master's thesis. You may freely choose the topic of the thesis and thereby get a chance to concentrate on and specialise in a specific field of interest. The thesis may be written in collaboration with another student or it may be the result of your individual effort. When the thesis has been submitted, it is defended before the academic advisor as well as an external examiner.

Curriculum

*Most states require individuals to complete 150 semester (225 quarter) hours in certain subject areas in order to be eligible to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam and/or obtain a CPA license. Walden’s accounting programs can help graduates progress toward meeting those requirements. The BS in Accounting offers 120 quarter (80 semester) credit hours that include upper-level courses in topics such as financial accounting, auditing, taxation, and management accounting. TheMS in Accounting and the MS in Accounting and Management offer 30 semester (45 quarter) credit hours, while the MBA Accounting for Managers specialization offers nine semester (13.5 quarter) credit hours. These programs include graduate courses in topics such as financial accounting, managerial accounting, and legal and ethical accounting practices. This will require students to complete additional coursework to meet state requirements.

In each state, there are specific policies that must be followed when an individual is seeking to become a licensed accountant. Some states will not allow individuals who complete the Walden accounting programs to sit for the CPA licensing exams due to state-specific issues such as professional accreditation or face-to-face instruction. For information on the educational requirements for your state, refer to the state’s Board of Accountancy or related agency.

Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance about accountant licensure; however, it remains the responsibility of the individual enrolling in the program to read, understand, and comply with the licensure requirements in the state where he or she wishes to practice.

Walden University can make no representation, warranty, guarantee, or commitment that successful completion of a Walden program, or coursework for credit within a program, will make a graduate eligible to sit for a licensure exam or to obtain state licensure.

Walden’s MS in Accounting offers a foundation from which to pursue career options in such areas as:

  • Compliance auditing
  • Cost accounting
  • External auditing
  • IT auditing
  • Governmental accounting
