With the breadth of courses, this programme equips future accountants, auditors and financial managers to change the way they see the traditional, yet increasingly creative discipline of accounting. At Rennes SB, we are looking for dynamic and self-driven students to share their country-specific expertise and help undertake a collective journey towards a better understanding of global Accounting practices.

“Become the most-trusted business Professional”


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.
