About this course

The financial world is constantly changing: Markets evolve, new instruments for management are created, and regulatory environments constantly change. Professionals in finance and accounting need to be adaptable, precise, and analytical to keep a business’ finances in good order. 

The IU Master of Management in Finance and Accounting Management combines two fields to give you comprehensive expertise in financial strategies for maximising returns and minimising risk, investment analysis, accounting management, controlling, and more. You'll learn to address uncertainties and implement appropriate strategies for a company’s size, organisational life cycle phase, or ownership structure.
