4 4 / 9 The programme covers four academic terms of full-time study (120 hec) including three terms of courses (90 hec) and one term of Master Degree Project 30 hec (thesis writing). The programme comprises core courses, including methods, elective courses and Master Degree Project. Core courses are programme specific and include courses in methods with emphasis on qualitative and quantitative analysis. Elective courses from other Master programmes, or in special cases, and only after permission granted by the Graduate School, second cycle courses at other universities may be an option. Each term is divided into two periods, and each course is 7.5 hec, except where noted. Core courses Strategic Management Accounting Operational Management Accounting Advanced Financial Accounting Advances in Accounting Research Methodology Course Master Degree Project Auditing Track Advanced Course in Commercial Law II Tax Law I Financial Statement Analysis General track Applied Enterprise Systems Business Intelligence Financial Statement Analysis Accounting Communication in Practice As the programme has a number of elective courses, students are able to tailor their education to specific needs which means that students can acquire different profiles within the programme. The programme coordinator will provide students with suggested electives for different specializations. In addition, the programme provides a basis for those who want to enter a doctoral programme. 1 st term Strategic Management Accounting (core course, 7.5 hec). The course focuses on the relationship between business strategy and the design and use of management accounting systems. Strategic management accounting integrates elements of strategic and marketing management into management accounting. Here, management accounting is viewed as a generic approach to accounting for strategic positioning, which includes gathering, refining, analyzing, and presenting data that originate in the competitive environment and thus encompass both customers and competitors.

5 5 / 9 Operational Management Accounting (core course, 7.5 hec). The course focuses on the relationship between strategic and operational management accounting. An insight in management accounting is the importance of the design and use of management accounting models that facilitate the implementation of strategy and strategic change. The course focuses on management accounting models under different strategic and operational contingencies. The course also examines the role of management accounting in value adding processes. Further, we discuss and develop an understanding for management accounting change from different perspectives. Applied Enterprise Systems (core course General track 7.5 hec) The course addresses the use of standardized, IT based business solutions such as Enterprise Resource Planning Systems as a strategic resource. Specific solutions are approached through a wide range of perspectives such as investment, implementation and integration. The course includes exercises and assignments that involve the use of several state of the art IT solutions. Business Intelligence (core course General track 7.5 hec) The course covers IT based solutions for strategic and operational management accounting. Specifically, the course focuses on the design and use of IT solutions for planning, decision making and control from a management accounting perspective. The course includes exercises and assignments that involve the use of several stateof the art IT solutions. Advanced Course in Commercial Law II (core course Auditing track 15 hec) Currently this elective is only offered in Swedish. The course aims to give the students an in depth knowledge of contract law, the use of different types of agents, contract writing and contract interpretation, in particular in the light of the extensive use of standard contracts. The course aims to give: 1. an in depth knowledge of the sales contract of movable and immovable property and other types of agreements, such as service, rental and leasing contracts. 2. an in depth knowledge of company law with a special emphasis on limited liability companies, non-trading partnerships and partnership/limited partnership as well as combinations of the same 3. an in depth knowledge of the rules regarding the various forms of credit securities 4. knowledge of voluntary and coercive measures in connecting with payment difficulties and insolvency such as chords, corporate restructuring, liquidation and bankruptcy.

6 6 / 9 5. knowledge of criminal law relating to property offences with particular emphasis on crimes against creditors. 6. a basic understanding of how regulatory frameworks are used in practice within the company. 2 nd term Advanced Financial Accounting (core course 15 hec). The course covers regulatory issues in accounting, as well as specific accounting issues. Within accounting issues the focus is on advanced and currently debated issues such as financial instruments, pensions, provisions, leasing, etc. Issues for both listed and unlisted companies are discussed. In addition, the issues are contextualized through a discussion of how they affect different parties in the financial accounting setting. This is partly done by relating the issues to accounting theory and research. There is also a section on fundamental issues in auditing, such as the role of independence, judgment and integrity. These issues are discussed in terms of auditing practice. Accounting Communication in Practice (core course general track 7.5 hec). The course emphasizes the communication of accounting information from a producer and investor relations perspective, serving the information needs of investors and other stakeholders. Specific situations involving accounting communication will be examined to provide students a set of tools and communication strategies when companies are in crises, merge or listing on a stock exchange. Tax Law I (core course Auditing track 15 hec). Currently this elective is only offered in Swedish. The course focuses on income taxation. The three categories of income are; 1. Business income, 2. Employment income, and 3. Capital income. Special emphasis is on business income and its relation to the laws relating to accounting. An exposition is given of the regulations relating to the valuation of assets and liabilities according to the current taxation regulations. Within the framework of the course an overview of social legislation and legislation relating to value added tax (VAT) is provided. The course also describes the regulations relating to tax law suits and, in connection with this, the fiscal sanctioning system.

7 7 / 9 3 rd term Advances in Accounting Research (core course 7.5 hec). The course is intended to link existing accounting research with issues in accounting practice. Methodology Course (core course 7.5 hec). The course will link scientific method to the Master Degree Project performed by the students. Financial Statement Analysis (core course 7.5 hec). The course has a user perspective, focusing on external analysis of companies. Among the topics of interest are strategy and strategic change; business development and innovation in large corporations; evaluation of intangible assets, and innovation and R&D. A number of empirical cases of companies operating in various industries are studied. Only students with very good study results at the Graduate School, excellent English language proficiency and a clear purpose for their exchange period may be permitted to study as exchange students at our partner universities. 4 th term Master Degree Project (Master thesis) 30 hec The fourth term is devoted to full time master degree thesis writing (30 higher education credits) under the supervision of a faculty member.

8 8 / 9 6. Tuition and Examination The language of instruction is English. Courses will include lectures, seminars and case studies. The students will also work together in small groups, according to educational principles such as problem-based learning, experiential learning and action learning. Group reports will be assessed and graded individually, as will individual term papers and individually written exams. The courses will be examined separately. Each course is graded with Pass with Distinction (väl godkänd, VG), Pass (godkänd, G) or Fail (underkänd, U).
