The 'Advanced Studies in Accountancy' is a full-time programme. It can be attended on a part-time basis, e.g. to combine it with professional activities. It is a thorough, practice-oriented specialised programme, for those who want to acquire a detailed knowledge of external financial reporting and control. The objective of the programme is to prepare students holding undergraduate university degrees to the professional practice of accountants, external and internal auditors. To link theory with practice, the programme ends with a two-month project in May and June in a company or institution chosen by the students.
