Master of Financial Management and Control Full-time

FMC comprises three pillars. Firstly you will scrutinise anything that has to with finance: from financing start-ups to acquisition for existing companies. FMC will train you to have all the traits of a prospective CFO, that’s why a second important aspect of the programme is management. And last but not least, we focus on control systems as found in corporate governance. How can you devise an efficient data system, for example, or use soft control systems to encourage consumer confidence?


The FMC programme consists of four terms. Full-time students start the programme during the first week of September and complete it the following August. Students will follow five classes during the first three terms, with lectures from Monday till Friday (lecture hours vary), and during the fourth term, students will complete their thesis project and won’t have any other classes during that period.

Structure of Master of Financial Management and Control Full-time

The icing on the cake of your education

All FMC theory is specifically designed to make you an international financial expert in the new economy. Many of our students come from outside Europe, and have a completely different approach when it comes to management. Consequently the first few terms, we will spend extra time on western management philosophy. Apart from the usual themes such as Financial Accounting and Organizational Behaviour and Leadership, we also pay close attention to Big Data techniques. Companies from all around the world are sitting on a gold mine of information, ready to be analysed by FMC graduates. Afraid it will be all theory and no practice? Don’t worry, FMC student also follow a range of practical courses to boost their professional skills. And to further nourish your enthusiasm we will visit a number of international companies, such as KPN and Unilever, to see first-hand how these international companies are tackling today’s financial issues. Finally, it will be time to write your Master thesis. Many will cringe at hearing that dreadful six-letter word, but not FMC students. They use this thesis as a springboard to their career in finance. FMC students usually write their thesis for an existing company, that introduce a financial issue they are struggling with. One young lady, for instance, wrote her end paper on the advantages of Bitcoin. Her sponsor company was so impressed they eventually reintroduced Bitcoin as a payment method.
