Program content

The combination of financial accounting, management control and finance offers an all-round perspective on financial issues. You will study a wide range of topics in courses and seminars and examine issues from a both practical and analytical point of view.

The core courses help you to get acquainted with a wide range of topics that are essential for accounting and finance and provide a solid background for attending the seminars.

The seminars are important components of the MSc programme. For these intensive courses, active participation and commitment are mandatory. You will be expected to write and present several papers, present aspects of the literature or case applications, ask questions, mention doubts and express ideas in class discussions.

The last two blocks of the programme are devoted to the master’s thesis. You will work on your thesis individually, under close supervision by a member of our academic staff.

Tuition fees

Master programs

  • EU: EUR 2.006
  • Non-EU: 14.500

Research master programs

  • EU: 2.006
  • Non-EU: 12.000 - 15.800

Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships. Below you can find the few scholarships that might be applicable to you.

Erasmus Education Fund

Every academic year, the Erasmus Education Fund (EEF) supports several students with a scholarship of 3000 euro's per year. The EEF is only for excellent students who need provable financial support. Students may apply by following the application procedure for the EEF.

Erasmus School of Economics Student Waiver for excellent students from non-EEA countries

The Erasmus School of Economics has created a separate fund to support excellent students. The maximum award of the waiver consists of a tuition fee waiver for the year 2016-2017. Resulting in a tuition fee equal to the statutory fee. Current or prospective students who are awarded this waiver will therefore not themselves directly receive a sum of money.

Holland Scholarship Erasmus University

The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to do their bachelor’s or master’s in Holland. The scholarship amounts to €5,000.
