- Year 1
The first year is the introductory (propaedeutic) year
In your first year you’ll find out why finance is the beating heart of a business. You’ll learn about the financial and non-financial impact of company operations and understand the crucial role of a financial controller. Looking at the numbers, you’ll be able to improve a company’s performance.
- Year 2
In the second year, you’ll take a wider look at an organisation, analysing numbers and learning how to turn advice into profits. You’ll work in project groups and use IT tools, such as Excel and SAP, to get a better understanding of a company. It’s not just about cash. You’ll discover how a company can impact the social environment and break cultural barriers.
- Year 3
Specialisation and exchange
The third year kicks off with a 15-week internship, which you can do right here in the Netherlands, to broaden your local network, or anywhere in the world. You’ll get the chance to apply all the things you have learnt during the first two years.
- Year 4
Internship and graduation
