 Bachelor in Accounting


​​​​Accountants are required to disclose useful information for decision-making processes and to participate knowledgeably in the organisations' life. This Degree curriculum is based upon a broad and thorough approach to accounting, taxation and auditing. It offers theoretical, technological and practical training rendering the holders of our Degree in Accounting competent and skilful professionals, able to adapt to any organisation, or to further education into more advanced studies. The Accounting Practitioner is an asset within organisations, whether private or public, whether for profit or non-profit, and of national or international scope. Our Degree in Accounting is recognised by the Order of Chartered Accountants because it meets the academic skills as defined for the qualification of Chartered Accountants. The curricular internship replaces the required professional internship necessary for the ​Order of Chartered Accountants membership.​​
