Objectives

The objective of the Master's degree in Accounting, Control and Audit is to prepare students for careers in auditing, control, accounting and consulting, in both consulting firms or the financial department of companies.

The DSCG (Diplôme Supérieur en Comptabilité Gestion) is a national qualification organised around 7 exams: The Master's degree in Accounting, Control and Audit is the only diploma that exempts the student from 5 of the 7 exams. It also allows students that wish to pursue a career in chartered accounting to register and start their professional internship. All these points combined with a strong partnership with the Order of Chartered Accountants and other professionals make the diploma a recognised path to enter careers in the accounting and finance professions.

In addition, in an environment of fast-changing international standards, the objective of this course is to give the students a solid grounding in the most important of international standards - IFRS: this standard is compulsory for all listed European groups, and the new French standards have been directly based on it.
