Programme subjects

Managerial accounting

This course introduces students to current management accounting concepts and techniques. Major topics include the role of accountants in internal decision-making; tools used in the design and development of costing systems; the preparation of budgets and their role as a planning and control tool; other decision-making tools including pricing decisions, inventory and quality cost issues, and fraud. You'll learn how to use accounting to facilitate and align decision making for owners, managers, and employees, and how accountants create, organize, interpret, and communicate information that improves internal processes and enables organizations to identify and exploit opportunities to create value within the supply chain and with customers.

Managerial Economics

The close interdependence of management and economics has led to the development of managerial economics. Economic analysis is required for various concepts such as demand, profit, cost and competition. Managerial economics is thus considered as economics applied to "choice problems" or alternatives and allocation of scarce resources by firms. Managerial economics is a discipline that combines economic theory with managerial practice. It helps to bridge the gap between problems of logic and problems of policy. This course offers effective tools and techniques for managerial policy making.

Tax systems and optimisation

Students will learn about the structure of individual taxes included in the tax system. Students will learn the basic terminology and skills needed to understand common tax issues and problems, as well as the knowledge needed to solve simpler tax problems. Students will be able to prepare direct tax returns for simpler tax cases.

International finance

The increasing reliance on closely integrated foreign operations has opened up a parallel world of finance in every multinational firm that has been overlooked until now. This course therefore examines many aspects of financial decision-making in global firms that have triggered these changes. It briefly explains the overall structure of global finance, outlining an analytical framework that serves as a guide for critical financial decisions regarding financing, investment, risk management, and incentive management in the multinational firm. This framework emphasizes the need to align opposing forces in order for multinational firms to gain a competitive advantage in their internal capital markets.


The aim of the course is to familiarize the student with all phases of the audit process. The audit process can be divided into 5 audit phases (preparation, execution, summary of the result, reporting and monitoring of corrective actions). The course describes all the phases in detail, so the student is introduced to the audit process from the selection of the audit number, audit team and auditee, through the subject matter of the audit, the start date of the on-site audit, the expected number of days of on-site audit (at the discretion of the AO), to the scope of the audit, the general objectives of the audit and information regarding the submission of the report.

Payroll accounting

Payroll accounting is essentially the calculation, administration, recording and analysis of employee compensation. It includes any basic pay that an employee receives, along with other types of payments that accrue in the course of their work. This course prepares the student with the basic knowledge needed for payroll accounting. We will begin with a brief overview of payroll accounting. We will discuss debits, credits, liabilities, and assets. We will then review an example of posting payroll transactions and accruals to the journal for one month.

International accounting

This course provides an opportunity to gain real-world experience of accounting in an international context. It introduces the context of accounting information with respect to the wider social, political, economic, natural and cultural environment. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to describe the causes and nature of differences in international financial reporting, explain accounting regulation, explain and evaluate the conceptual framework of financial reporting, understand the theory and practice of consolidated group financial statements, and synthesize and effectively use accounting information and knowledge, describe and discuss some key international accounting standards, understand the nature of financial statement interpretation in an international context, identify, evaluate and critically assess alternative accounting techniques, numerical and quantitative skills applied to international accounting scenarios. You will also be able to demonstrate high personal effectiveness, apply critical self-awareness and personal resource management in the context of a diverse business environment.

Electronic banking and financial instruments

The development of information technology has led to a new form of banking. Traditional banking, based on the physical presence of the customer, is only a part of banking activities. In the last few years, e-banking has emerged, adopting new distribution channels such as the Internet and mobile services. The main objective has been to enable businesses to improve service delivery and reduce transaction costs and customer demand for anytime, anywhere services. However, it has increased vulnerability to fraudulent activities such as spamming, phishing and credit card fraud. The main challenge facing e-banking, then, is ensuring banking security. In this context, the objective of this course is to provide an overview of e-banking services with emphasis on various aspects, explore the various challenges and risks, and discuss some proposed solutions.

Financial management of the company

This course introduces students to current financial concepts and tools for managing money in organizations involved in the local and global economy. It examines current best practices in financial analysis and planning through the application of financial concepts. These include financial performance indicators, time value of money, financial markets and institutions, securities and corporate valuation, cost of capital, risk and return, long-term financial budgeting, and working capital management. In addition, topics related to lease financing, hybrid securities and derivatives, trusts, mergers and acquisitions, and international corporate finance also appear throughout the course of study.


The aim of the course is to build on and deepen knowledge of business economics, management, marketing, financial and managerial accounting and financial management. Emphasis is placed on understanding the importance of controlling tools for managerial work as well as their quality provision with economic information based on financial and management reporting and accounting. Particular attention is paid to the precise definition of the interface between strategic and operational controlling, qualitative and quantitative performance measurement tools, and managerial responsibilities associated with controlling activities.
