This advanced programme provides a rigorous grounding in modern corporate accounting and finance theory suitable for those wishing to undertake research in the field or wishing to improve their knowledge to deal with problems concerning applied and empirical aspects of the subject.
Knowledge on accounting, finance and taxation is very important to the career of the chartered account (técnico oficial de contas ), a professional who plans, calculates and prepares company accounts and who has the technical responsibility to oversee all accounting operations. The Degree in Accounting and Finance will be the initial academic preparation to the entrance examinations for the statutory auditor (revisor oficial de contas) career. Both chartered accounting and statutory auditoring are regulated professions. Students who graduate in Accounting and Finance will be prepared to work in the SME. These students will be able to create and/or manage their own business, or to run other persons’ SME.
