The 1st step of our application process for students from another UvA faculty or Dutch University is checking the entry requirements of this Master’s. In your online application you will be asked to upload proof of all mentioned requirements. We want to guarantee students an interactive programme, for that reason we apply a selection procedure. This means that besides the entry requirements, your application will also be selected based on the selection criteria.

Entry requirements

The Admissions Office will evaluate your eligibility based on:

  • 1. Your academic Bachelor’s degree

    All students holding an academic Bachelor's and/or Master's degree in Business Economics, (Fiscal) Economics or Business Administration or one of the Bachelor's from our list of Dutch Bachelor's degrees are eligible to apply for admission to this Master's programme. A specialisation in Accountancy and/or Control will generally lead to direct admission.

    Students with a different Bachelor’s degree or specialisation in Accountancy and/or Control will need to have completed all the following coursework:

    • Financial accounting (intermediate level)
    • Management accounting (intermediate level)
    • Finance (introductory level)
    • Quantitative research methods (intermediate level)

    If your previous education does not fulfill this programme’s requirements, you might be eligible to apply for the pre-Master's programme.

Selection Criteria 

Meeting the entry requirements alone is not a guarantee for admission. Besides the entry requirements you need to meet the selection criteria. This means that your application will be compared with other applicants. The selection is based on your GPA and motivation letter.   

  • 1. Your Grade Point Average (GPA)

    We are looking for students who have shown academic potential to keep up with the high level and workload of the programme. We will assess your application in its entirety, but we are looking for students with good results in their Bachelor’s degree. 

    Previous experience has shown that applicants with a  GPA of 7.0 and higher have a good chance to be selected to the programme. Please note that applications with a lower GPA can still be submitted and will be assessed.  

  • 2. Your motivation letter

    The motivation letter (max. one A4)  allows you to explain why you would be a good fit for the Master’s programme and which experiences have led you to this decision. 

  • Part-time programme (in Dutch): Combine work and study

    Are you a young professional, holding an HBO degree (HEAO-BE/AA/RA/AC) or a relevant academic BSc degree and do you want to combine work and study? We offer intensive programmes in Dutch for both the Accountancy and the Control track. These programmes allow you as a working professional to obtain your Master's degree whilst working 4 days per week in an Accountancy or Control related environment. The part-time classes are solely taught on Fridays. This way you can combine it with your career.
