Accountancy The Accountancy track is designed for Business Economics students seeking a career in the financial sector. It is suitable for students with a general and analytical interest in financial information flows from and within organisations and who want to be able to satisfy the information needs of senior managers and other stakeholders, both internal and external. Combining academic rigour with practical examples and applications, this track provides admission to the UvA Post-Master Accountancy (PMA) programme, at the end of which students qualify as chartered accountants (taught in Dutch).

Control This track focuses on the role of accounting information in the financial management of organisations. The courses in this track provide a multidisciplinary perspective, integrating insights from economics, psychology and organisation theory. Consequently, graduates have a unique knowledge base that consists of specialised knowledge in the fields of finance and accounting and a thorough understanding of how accounting information can be used to manage real-world organisations. The track provides admission to the UvA Executive Master of Finance and Control (EMFC) program (taught in Dutch).
