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.
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.
