The Bachelors course in Finance and Control is geared toward getting you ready for a financial career in management positions.

Companies have an ongoing need to assess their financial positions. Every day, financial experts are challenged to solve the puzzle of linking money, information, products and services in the most profitable way. Finance and Control graduates know how to develop and control procedures and systems that ensure the best decisions are made. In addition, they have a deep understanding of the human, cultural and non-financial aspects of a decision or transaction.

The importance of financial management positions has increased in recent years. This is partly due to new laws but also because organisations are becoming more aware of the need for sound risk management. This course prepares you for middle or higher management positions in the field of finance, in either the private or public sector.

Finance and Control is a professionally-oriented course. It focuses on a number of specialisations that are in high demand in the corporate world. These include strategic management, international corporate finance, international accounting and taxes, risk management, business optimalisation, investment strategies and business communication. You will gain a thorough theoretical grounding in these areas and then apply your knowledge to various team projects and assignments throughout the course.

Work placement abroad

During the first semester of your 3rd year, you will do a work placement in an internationally-oriented company, usually outside the Netherlands. Your work placement abroad will give you an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience in the field of finance. At the same time you will be working in an international environment. This will give you a chance to practise your language skills and learn about another culture.

Career prospects

As a finance and control expert, you will have job opportunities in a wide range of positions and working environments. For example, you could become a controller or account manager at a financial institution. Here are some examples of positions open to Finance and Control graduates:

HAN University of Applied Sciences has two campuses, located in Arnhem and Nijmegen.

Nijmegen is situated on the banks of the river Waal, in the east of The Netherlands, near to the German border, and is the oldest city in Holland - recently celebrating its 2,000th anniversary.

Arnhem, the capital of the province of Gelderland, is only 15km from Nijmegen and lies partially in the hills at the edge of National Park De Veluwe, a striking area of woods and heath. Arnhem is a ‘green’ city, where people take pleasure in living, working and recreation.
