MSc in Accounting & Financial Management


Course Description

The MSc in Accounting and Financial Management is designed to prepare students for careers such as financial analyst, business controller, chief financial officer (CFO), investment banker, consultant and auditor.

As a graduate from the program program you will have a deep understanding of how financial and non-financial controls can be integrated and used for steering purposes in multinational companies, how large companies report to external share- and stakeholders and how those evaluate the financial and non-financial performance of companies in for example valuation settings. For the 2017 intake, the program has been redesigned to be even more competitive and attractive to students and employers.

Key topics include financial reporting principles, business control, capital budgeting, financial analysis and corporate valuation. In all the courses there is an analytical and international perspective. For example, in the financial reporting core courses the focus is on the main concepts and principles that lie behind most international accounting standards such as IFRS. Consequently, the insights you get in the program remain valuable also when concrete financial standards change. In the program accounting is seen as a language you need to understand in order to properly analyze and understand a business corporation.

As a top level program with relatively low number of students, SSE can offer an intimate and creative learning environment. The faculty (all active researchers) is engaged in pedagogical development and intrigued by the learning journey of our students. The program is thoughtfully designed to encompass a variety of pedagogical methods such as lectures, group work, case teaching and a high degree of real-world examples. With close connections to the business community we are also able to have frequent guest lectures by top management of multinational firms.
