The MSc program in Accounting and Finance is one of the most highly demanded graduate programs in Greece that has been operating successfully since the academic year 2004-2005. The program’s curriculum was reformed in 2018 (M.D. 5051/ Governmental Gazette 3071/issue Β’/27-7-2018 as modified and currently in force) and now offers three distinct specializations, primarily aiming to better qualify its graduates and boost even more their job placement prospects.
The program’s main pillars are excellence, meritocracy and extroversion, and its main aim is to foster graduates that will become highly sought-after business executives, successful entrepreneurs, or academic staff, in Greece or abroad. Accounting and Finance are two of the most rapidly developing scientific fields, both at research and professional levels. A successful career in these areas requires a high level of understanding of the theory and practice of accounting and finance, in order to be able to evaluate company and managerial performance. In addition, financial markets have reached a very high degree of complexity, which requires the study of sophisticated and academically rigorous concepts, in order to be able to adapt to the rapidly changing needs of a successful career in finance. At the same time, the use of accounting information is indispensable for undertaking financial analysis, which can be an asset for a career in all areas of finance.
The program’s mission is the advancement of knowledge and scientific research in the fields of Accounting and Finance. Especially when considering the unstable national and international economic conditions, as well as the high complexity of financial markets, specified knowledge in those fields is now more than ever essential for climbing the executive ladder in any given industry. This mission is accomplished through a contemporary and well-designed curriculum that utilizes a variety of teaching methods apart from the study of international scientific literature, such as laboratory classes, case studies, and individual or team assignments.
The program leads to the award of Master of Science (MSc) in Accounting and Finance with the following specializations:
