MSc Accounting and Finance

The structure of the course is well designed, with a mix of lectures and practical exercises. Some classes involve the application of data processing software which is an important skill to gain in this era of Big Data. After the first semester, I was able to proficiently manipulate Excel and STATA, and even write simple code, which will be very helpful for my future work.
