At the School of Finance & Accounting, we offer education in the fields of Financial Accounting, Financial Management and Management Accounting. Our educational programmes balance areas of specialisation with general business knowledge and link theory to professional life through the use of real-life case studies and assignments. We also aim to contribute to our students’ personal growth, helping them to develop the skills required for a range of challenging business situations. With training on practical communication and computer skills as well as team-building sessions and internships, our students develop their skills in areas such as problem solving, the ability to adapt to changes and the ability to work as part of a team.

Projects are designed to help our students apply their theoretical knowledge to practical situations. An internship, preferably abroad, is a compulsory component of all of our regular degree programmes, and the dissertation in the final year should examine, analyse and provide solutions to a real-life strategic business problem. With students of more than 15 different nationalities, our School provides a truly inter-cultural learning environment.

Our network

We have exchange partnerships with over 13 universities around the world. Students from these partner universities can study at our School and are exempt from paying tuition fees. We also have exchange of teaching staff, thus encouraging the sharing of expertise. We are constantly on the lookout for possibilities to expand our international network, in order to provide our students with the best possible opportunities for truly internationally-oriented educational programmes.

Students who want to participate in our exchange programme can make a choice from 5 different programmes. You can find a complete course overview in our Study Guide.

This leads to an extensive programme of English courses, in which foreign students only from partner universities of the School of Finance & Accounting can participate. In general students stay for one semester. They will receive a certificate of participation as well as a transcript of records at the end of their stay. We expect exchange students to take at least 25 ECTS per semester, where each ECTS represents 28 work hours (lecture time and homework together). We require students to inform us prior to their arrival about the programme they will take, so that we know how many students will attend the different classes. Students can select the programme they will take on the application form. In total there are 5 different Exchange Programmes, three during the Autumn semester and two during the Spring semester.

Students from partner universities of the School of Finance & Accounting can apply for the exchange programme after nomination by their home university. If you have any questions, please send your e-mail to
