The Master’s degree in Auditing is designed so that the student acquires a set of generic and specific skills, such as
- Verbal and written communication
- Adaption to specific situations.
In addition, students acquire specific skills that are developed throughout the Master’s and that fall into two categories:
- Accountancy: recording, processing, interpreting and analysing accountancy information from an external and internal business perspective;
- Auditing: planning an audit and applying the standard techniques and procedures for the proper review of the areas of work of the company, and correctly interpreting the information obtained to include it in a final report.
- Taught sessions
On campus teaching is the time of the academic year during which teaching takes place in the classrooms and lectures play a significant role in the teaching methods.Classes are taught in such a way as to encourage student participation and teamwork, and to bring alive the reality and problems of the auditing world. To this end, numerous case studies are examined.
- Practical training in firms
During this stage, students realise an internship in an audit firm under the supervision and guidance of a professional from the field. Students work as part of an auditing team, basically carrying out the fieldwork assigned to them.
