Corporate Reporting, Finance & Tax


Nyenrode's Center for Corporate Reporting, Finance & Tax focuses on external financial reporting, financing and taxation issues.

We provide education and research and a continuous exchange between practice and (international) scientific research in the field.

We educate our students and participants in the fields of financial accounting and reporting; focusing on following skills:

  • Creating, analyzing and auditing annual accounts.
  • Making interim reports.
  • Constructing management reports and takeover balances.

The center also covers accounting theory as well as academic research in the field.
