If you hold a programme from a university other than Aarhus University, you can have your programme evaluated at the School of Business and Social Sciences, Aarhus University in order to find out if you meet the admission requirements. This evaluation will prioritize the sufficient content of the following subjects and ECTS-points:
Quantitative and Qualitative Methods – 15 ECTS
Please note it is possible to apply for admission before you have completed your Bachelor’s degree programme, but a transcript of exam results from the BA/BSc programme up to the time of application must always be included in the application, even if the BA/BSc diploma and examination results have to be submitted after the deadline.
If you are lacking relevant documentation prior to the applications deadline, write down what sort of documentation, you are lacking, and when you will receive it. Official desriptions of not yet completed courses must be attached.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Danish / Norwegian / Swedish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
If the documents mentioned above are not in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English, they must be accompanied by translations into English. The translations of your diploma and grade transcript must be officially certified translations into English, either by your home institution or a certified translator. The course description may be translated by yourself, but certified by your university.
NB! Your language test results cannot be older than 2 years (incl. CAE, CPE).
When you sign up for an IELTS or TOEFL test, you must also ask the test institution to send your test results to AU. The university will use the results sent by the testing institution to validate your document. The Aarhus University TOEFL code is 8935 (select “Other department not listed”).
It is possible to apply for admission before you have taken your English language test and obtained the required result. Instead you must submit documentation that you have signed up for a test.
Please also provide the following:
1. Course descriptions in English briefly describing the contents of your specific BA courses or other information that will contribute to describing the contents of your Bachelor’s degree programme.
2. Official descriptions of relevant courses to be completed after the application deadline.
3. An official description of the marking scale used at your home university.
Management accounting – also known as management control – is one of the classical and most fundamental aspects of business administration. We aim at developing management technologies and test theories within production, reporting, analysis and managerial use of financial as well as non-financial information that can:
- Be used for communicating financial events in the organisation;
- Influence decisions on resource allocation;
- Influence the management of the organisation and improve the insight and feedback.
The programme provides you with in-depth knowledge of:
1. the classical foundation of management accounting;
2. the use and application of information technology; and
3. the development of modern management accounting practices.
The Management Accounting and Controlling programme provides you with professional qualifications and competences that mirror and sum up the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired through the prerequisite courses, specialisation courses and electives. The main objective of the programme is to convey professional qualifications and competencies which you can apply in your professional life and in your future career.
