Accounting and Taxation


The master's degree in Accounting and Taxation provides the practical training required to specialize in the fields of accountancy, taxation and auditing. On completion of the course, students will be able to apply their skills effectively to manage and complete tasks associated with these fields in any kind of company.
In the near future, changes will be introduced as a result of the harmonization of accounting and tax regulations in Europe, and the increase in transparency requirements in all areas. Consequently, organizations will need experts in this field, with the skills to adopt the new regulations and rapidly adapt to the new situation, in a highly competitive global market.

The course is particularly aimed at holders of bachelor's degrees and pre-EHEA degrees in business administration and management, economics, financial and actuarial sciences or business sciences and at chartered accountants. It will enable them to gain advanced knowledge of accountancy, taxation and auditing.

This master is recognised by the Instituto de Contabilidad y Auditoría de Cuentas as it is said in the document attach.
