Expertise center

Accounting, Auditing & Control

Introduction

Nyenrode's Center for Accounting, Auditing & Control focuses on the reliability of (non-) financial management and accountability information aimed at internal and external stakeholders.

Correct, current and reliable information is essential for the daily operations and strategic direction of any organization, and the role of IT systems and applications such as Data Analytics is pivotal.

Correct, current and reliable information is also essential for good governance. Through the various specializations within our center we look at this from different perspectives and roles – for instance from the controller or the accountant's.

Education

Our education programs aim to build our students into 'robust professionals'. We facilitate this by offering room for critical reflection and a focus on professional judgement and ethics.

Our education programs integrates personal and professional skills; training our students and participants to continuously act in the common interest and preparing them for the ever-changing expectations from stakeholders in a changeable environment.

The Center for Accounting, Auditing & Control is responsible for two of the three core expertise of both the accountancy and controller programs. We provide a significant contribution to the following programs:

  • Bachelor of Science in Accountancy
  • Master of Science in Accountancy
  • Post-Master RA (including the Custom Made track)
  • Master of Science in Management
  • Master of Science in Controlling
  • Executive Master in Finance & Control
  • Doctoral Program
  • Foundations of Management
  • Leadership Development Program

Additionally, we train experienced professionals through our Executive Educations programs, sharing our expertise in masterclasses, the New Board Program and the Supervisory Board Cycle, amongst others.

Research

The Center for Accounting, Auditing & Control conducts research in the following fields:

  • Auditing
  • Information and Management Accounting Control Systems
  • Corporate Governance

We conduct our research in cooperation with (international) professionals in the field. Faculty members regularly present their findings at international research conferences and seminars, and publish in academic journals.

You can find their (inter) national publications in the academic bios on the faculty members' profile pages.
