The Business - Accounting and Business Control programme offered by BI Norwegian Business School  closely follows the syllabus of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Professional Qualification. Upon graduation, you can continue towards CIMA accreditation. 

Two of the pillars at CIMA’s Strategic Level are automatically recognised by CIMA after completion of the major in Accounting and Business Control. BI is the only school in the Nordic countries that offers this valuable option.

You will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a career as a CFO, controller, treasurer, or corporate manager. These professionals need to be proficient in accounting, financial control, strategy, treasury, and forecasting. To understand what is required to establish a career as a controller, you will acquire knowledge in reporting, analysis, and the presentation of historical information of companies. 

In order to work in treasury, you will learn about capital structures, financial risk, liquidity, and investment analysis. Finally, to be proficient in strategy and forecasting, you will develop knowledge and skills in strategic business analysis, modelling, scenario analysis, and valuation. 

Among the courses, you will find: 

  • Strategic Risk Analysis: When facing risk, what should the correct response be? Develop the competencies required to identify, analyse, evaluate, and manage risk.
  • Management Control: Develop the skills to interpret financial information for higher-level managerial decision making. Understand how incorporating technology can improve both analytical insight and reporting practices.
