Thanks to the practical approach of this course, many decide instead to look for a job in various sectors of business: some in accounting, others in business consulting.

The international approach of the course, our teaching methods and studying in three languages open doors towards a career in top management of private and public organisations in Europe or around the world.

This degree prepares students to sit the State Examination to gain access to the Italian National Register of Chartered Accountants, sector B of the register.
