You could be an investment advisor for ING, assessing the merits of offshore investments. This is what you do after you complete the degree programme and begin working on real assignments. But as a young professional, you do much more. You discover, for example, the culture at ‘your’ company. You attend meetings and company parties and meet with colleagues. You also learn all there is to know about ‘your’ market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do. In other words, you learn what this profession involves on a daily basis.
Although we offer courses in accounting, you will need to follow a Master in Business Administration (MBA) after your Bachelor’s to become a certified accountant. We have an MBA at THU and there are several options at other universities too, both inside and outside the Netherlands.

An increasing number of IFMC graduates decide they want to continue their education after graduation. Luckily, THUAS has a few Master’s that fit the IFMC programme, such as: a Master of Business Administration (MBA), a Master of Financial Management and Control and a Master of Risk Management.
You might have your heart set on an MBA programme at Rotterdam’s Erasmus School of Economics (ESE), such as the Master of Accounting, Auditing and Control. To prepare you for such a prestigious programme, IFMC offers you the opportunity to follow a pre-master in the first module of year four. That way you won’t have to follow ESE’s usual pre-master year after graduation.
