Denitsa Pacheva - Accountancy
'After two years of working at a ‘Big Four’ firm, UvA was the perfect continuation for me. The Amsterdam Business School has positioned itself amongst the best business schools in Europe and I can tell so by the many ambitious young people I met here.
The programme provides insights on the academic and practical side of accountancy, taught by international experts and top corporate representatives. Together they connect literature and practical issues. Classes are interactive: we analyse case studies, prepare and present assignments. This also develops our soft skills. Working in groups may challenge your way of thinking and improve your time management skills, which are crucial as a future professional.
I really like Amsterdam: a beautiful old city center combined with innovation hubs. Moreover, Amsterdam is one of the financial capitals of Europe, providing work opportunities after graduation.
Besides being a student, I am a committee member of the Master Career Club. Within this association we organise social events, but also career oriented events, such as network drinks with the Big Four companies and Mid Five companies.
For me, this programme provided me with a high standard of preparation, which will allow me to succeed in a more senior position in future.'
