European Post-Master Accountancy program

Date: Location: Tilburg

The three-year part-time PMA program to become Registered Accountant (RA) in the Netherlands (with CPA on demand) combines internationalization with a highly interactive and innovative curriculum. Classes are given in the Netherlands and Spain, with ample attention to accounting, control and auditing in other parts of Europe, including various central and eastern European countries. The studyload is concentrated in the period May-December, so outside of the busy Accountancy season.
