MSc in International Accounting, Management Control and Auditing


Programme Mission

Accounting is the language of a business, that speaks not only of its current health, but of what its financial future may look like. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of professionals who both speak and understand this language. From the increasing frequency of scandals that rock the corporate landscape, to the rising creativity in financial reporting, it’s certain that the world needs more skilled accounting experts.
That’s where the IAMCA Masters programme comes in to play as it helps students gain a larger perspective of the functioning of the modern-day corporate world, the nuances of its governance and the need for truthful reporting to shareholders who part with their savings to fuel the enterprise.

Reasons to join this programme :

  • A comprehensive master’s programme that includes a solid base in the general and specialised disciplines of finance.
  • Prepares students for diverse career opportunities in the field of finance.
  • Strong company links boost students’ chances of obtaining prestigious roles in the big companies of finance.
  • Possibility to participate in part-time professional experience with one of the school’s junior entreprises.
  • An international and multicultural programme with the opportunity to complete a ‘Winter Session’ abroad.
  • Possibility to join the Rennes SB alumni association, a rich network for internship and job opportunities.

Making the decision to study in Rennes School of Business was easy after learning about the School’s international outlook
Abdullahi ABBAS, Nigerian student

Making the decision to study in Rennes School of Business was easy after learning about the School’s international outlook and the demographics of the City of Rennes, which is largely populated by students from different continents of the world and with many higher institutions of learning. While living in Rennes I also discovered a peaceful and serene environment - the size of the city is perfect for its population and basic amenities, making for an ideal student life.
