Progr​​amme outline 


This programme is designed to help participants develop an in-depth understanding of audit, management control and information systems. It provides students with a range of knowledge, tools and skills and the ability to use them in a variety of operational and entrepreneurial situations to become responsible managers. 

The MSc looks at how digital transformation is changing the finance function by using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve performance through technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA) and chatbots. This disruption also helps to rethink internal processes and people management and to develop analytical reasoning which are essential skillsets needed to find solutions to real life problems. 

In addition, the programme supports and encourages students to develop their individual managerial and research capabilities to become key actors of change for their companies, profession, and the global business environment.
