    About the Degree

    The Management Accounting and Control programme seeks to equip students with a range of relevant management accounting concepts and theories so as to build a solid foundation for practice-oriented decision-making.

    The programme aims to develop management technologies and test theories within production, reporting, analysis, and managerial use of financial as well as non-financial information. All management technologies and theories are intended for use in communicating financial events in the organisation, influencing decisions on resource allocation, and improving insight and feedback to the management of the organisation.

    The programme applies a variety of teaching methods and types of evaluation. Students can expect traditional lectures, lectures with group exercises, and lectures dedicated to casework. AU encourages and expects student participation – because those who work are those who learn.

    An internship during the third semester is also recommended. This gives students the chance to experience and address some of the theoretical problems discussed during the first and second semester. This creates an appetite for more theory and is the foundation for writing a solid thesis.

    Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars, and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.
