The academia oriented tracks prepare students for their PhD dissertation research, being integrated with three years PhD Programs which are common in Europe as part of five years Graduate Programs. Planed activities are meant to expose students to research methodology courses which will develop their research skills, as well as courses offering them deep knowledge in the field of accounting, finance and statistics. The business-oriented track prepares students to undertake top positions in multinational corporations, auditing firms, consulting firms and financial institutions.

The program allows students to prepare for a career in academia or business. The academia oriented tracks are designed to provide students with the best available guidance for their research activities. Through the existent international collaborations, the program on one hand welcomes internationally renowned visiting professors, while on the other is able to place students in well-known PhD Programs in Europe and the US. The business-oriented track is designed to develop an advanced level of knowledge in the area of financial reporting, financial analysis and fiscal systems which will facilitate students’ access to the status of certified accountant in accordance to CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accounting) and ACCA (The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). Being a CIMA certified Master Program, after graduation students can obtain the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting certification.
Developing the program’s curriculum was done with advice from professors associated with the Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, London Business School, and ESSEC Business School Paris. Thus, students can benefit of teaching activities and research guidance from internationally renowned academics from top European and American universities. As the program is organized in partnership with an American University, students can therefore benefit of a one semester mobility at the Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, as well as of other Erasmus+ student mobility.
